The New Itihaas Drinks Menu


Out with the old and in with the new at Itihaas. After all it is 2018, we thought it was time to mix up our cocktails, spice our rum and pop the champagne. So, whether you like drinking by the bottle, pint, glass or shot, we have it covered here at Itihaas. Take a look at our favourites from the launch of our refreshed, flavoursome and brand NEW drinks menu

Signature Liquid Gold

Only the best will do for our customers and when it comes to cocktails, nothing can stop us from going all out. Treat yourself to the Russian Standard Vodka shaken with fresh honey and angostura bitters, topped with the finest champagne.

Keep it classic?

Stick with our classic Margarita, filled with premium tequila orange liqueur and blended with fresh lime. Want to stay with a classic but with a hint of something new? Then add your choice of either mango, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry or pineapple for that extra bit of flavour.


Wine time

If you love wine, then you will be in your element here at Itihaas, choose a bottle or glass of your favourite white, rose or red…but you may be stuck for choice with having 30 options. Ask a member of staff for their recommendations.

Whisky for the wise

Looking for an acquired taste? With our range of Whisky from Blended, Single malt or American bourbon we can guarantee it will go down perfectly matched with one of our Classic Indian dishes. Opt for a choice of Monkey shoulder, Glenfiddich, Jack Daniels or many other Whisky’s.


We like to satisfy all of our customers, so we have brought new and improved non-alcoholic cocktails to Itihaas this year and our favourite so far has to be the Bollywood Dreams filled with fresh strawberries and blackberries, muddled together with rose syrup, lengthened with lemonade.

We also have a large range of spirits, bottled beers, ciders, lassies and beverages, you will be spoilt for choice. Come along to Itihaas Indian Restaurant and enjoy one of our many refreshments, some new and some old but all deliciously fresh.
