The Indian bottle
Imagine if there was an Indian equivalent to Baileys Irish Cream, the classic cream liqueur. In a nutshell, that was the inspiration behind Somrus ($25), a brand that emerged a few years ago and is steadily winning fans. Combining rum, cream and spices and flavorings ranging from saffron to cardamom to almonds, this is India in a bottle. It makes fine drinking on its own, but for a holiday twist, it can be used in a gingerbread cake .
