So, what’s to drink?
For bar owners, the challenges of running a successful business really does depend on what you serve. So we’re going to help you along with a list of drink trends you can add to your menu to keep on top off the trends.
Whiskey innovations are on the rise! For the Finger-stirred Negroni, pour 1 oz Tanqueray gin, 1 oz Campari and 1 oz Cinzano Rosso Vermouth over ice into a cocktail shaker. Stir (with your finger) and strain into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with an orange twist.
Haig Club™ Whisky
HAIG CLUB™ is designed to be different – from the unique way in which it has been crafted to the distinctive square blue bottle in which it is presented. This classic cocktail is reversed, with the drinker stirring and diluting the cocktail until perfect.
Johnnie Walker Red Label & Green Tea
The subtle tannins of green tea combine with Johnnie Walker Red Label Whisky to accentuate the peaty richness and complexity of this outstanding blended Scotch.
Hot on the heels of craft gin, tequila is the next spirit to make its way into our cocktail shakers and highballs. What once was associated with a shot glass and lime chaser is now finding itself on cocktail menus at luxury hot spots and world-class clubs.
Virgin Watermelon Margarita
Non-drinkers want to socialize with their friends in a bar environment and enjoy a carefully prepared drink with complex flavours. A second factor is the emergence of non-alcoholic distilled spirits like Seedlip, a no-proof beverage similar to gin. With high-quality ingredients like this, bartenders are able to make creative, delicious virgin cocktails that vastly overshadow the humble Shirley Temple.
Carbonated water, alcohol and flavouring. These have been trending overseas during summer and will slowly hit our shores soon! The drink contains carbonated water, alcohol and flavouring. Can’s aren’t just for beer anymore!
In the spirit of wellness, customers are gravitating towards drink descriptions that include tonics like kombucha and herbal tea. The tart, fizzy flavour of the fermented beverage kombucha works well as a drink mixer and is thought to provide health benefits.
Try out some of these predicted trends and build excitement around your drinks list. Consider installing a self-pour beer wall or cocktail tap to make your bar service more efficient and boost your sales.
