The one thing what comes to our mind when we hear Blue Water would be their impeccable ambiance. A well-lit outdoor seating, multiple levels of dining and rooftops, the place has it all. And above all this, good array of food and drinks.
Cocktails ( Innovatives)…
Paisaaa Wasoool Kesaar: Served in the classic Milk bottle, this drink is an innovative mix of Whiskey, Milk and Saffron. The drink, even though it has whisky, is very easy going drink. The milk and saffron was in ideal proportion with the whiskey to give a punch with a pleasant feel.
Thandaa Paan: Just as the name suggests, the drink is a flavorful combination of paan, white rum, mint and lemon. A very refreshing drink. Paan Mojito to be precise.
Kaalash Kundi: More of a Mexican preparation. Tequila, salsa, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, beer with a chili rim. Michelada to be precise.
Take Me High: Bacardi black, Kahlua, espresso shots topped up with coke, is a delightful drink aimed at those audience who love coffee. And yes, true to its name, the drink takes us high.
Haaard Sunstone: Personal pick of the night. Its Blue Water’s take on LIIT. As good as an LIIT, with that extra flavor from the cranberry juice. This took me high as well .
Crackling Spinach Cottage Cheese: Oriental preparation of paneer fingers coated and fried with mix spices and hint of spinach and served with a bed of spinach. The paneer was soft and the dish was well presented and yes, a good starter.
Cheesy Jalapeno: Well who doesn’t like a jalapeno popper as a starter? Giant cheese jalapeno was presented and disappeared in no time.

Bhune Murg Ke Pasande and Nasila Kebabs were true to their names, yet nothing exceptional.

Gajar Halwa: A ghee-rich preparation of gajar ka halwa. I would have personally preferred it to be less sweet and short of ghee.
