The Little Easy, Bandra’s favourite speakeasy-inspired bar and bistro, has always been at the top of its game, serving up some delicious food and divine cocktails with a twist. Launched just a little more than a year ago, the inventive bar offers a uniquely crafted cocktail experience, a favourite among its patrons.

The newest addition to The Little Easy’s expansive menu is a range of coffee infused cocktails, to give you a much-needed caffeine-cocktail fix, combined into something magical! Partnering with Coffee By Di Bella, India’s popular coffee chain that believes in treating patrons to the Ultimate Coffee Experience, The Little Easy is making sure it mixes nothing but the finest coffee beans and blends, with new out-of-the-ordinary cocktails.

The novel idea of coffee-infused cocktails came about when The Little Easy’s Mixologist Sarfaraz Khan, had a brainwave of mixing his two absolute favourites – liquor and coffee. Khan, with a degree in Hotel and Tourism Management, and over seven years of experience in the global Food and Beverage Industry, is known for his imaginative creations and expertise with flavours. His personal favourite amongst the Coffee Cocktails is the marshmallow-cinnamon mix called The Mellogang. Sarfaraz believes that bitters are an integral element of every cocktail. Precisely why The Little Easy curates its own range bitters with a rich blend of distilled liquor, strong spices, and herbs that cure. The new menu brings with it in-house Cherry bitters and imported Angostura bitters, which when mixed with coffee work in perfect harmony, certain to leave you on a ‘happy high’ note!

Speaking to us about the new menu, Vishesh Shah, Director, The Little Easy says, “Life is always better when you combine your favourite things. What could be better than coffee and liquor? A coffee cocktail perhaps! Some people like their coffee just how they like their spirits – ice cold. We have curated some delicious cocktails with a coffee twist using coffee beans by Coffee By Di Bella. Everyone has loyalties to their favourite brands, but there’s a good chance your favourite products are the result of two separate brands working together to create new co-branded products. We are continuously thriving to create collaborations and we support a strong exchange of ideas, and coffee and cocktails both sprout the world’s strongest conversations!” Adds Rahul Leekha, Director, Coffee By Di Bella, “The right blend and roast profile of the coffee can elevate a coffee infused cocktail to another level, we have worked closely with The Little Easy team to achieve this synergy.”
