If you love cocktails, then you're in for a treat. The cocktail world is evolving, and new trends are emerging that are sure to excite your taste buds. Cocktail bartenders are starting to get creative, using acid to give drinks a unique flavour, experimenting with new flavours, and even making pre-batched cocktails. In this blog post, we will take a look at some of the exciting things happening in the world of craft cocktails. We'll also discuss how tequila and mezcal will play a role in the future of cocktails. So sit back, relax, and enjoy learning about the latest trends in craft bartending!
Acid in cocktails?
One of the most exciting trends in craft cocktails is the use of acid. Acid gives cocktails a unique flavour that makes them stand out from the rest. Citrus fruits, such as lemons and limes, are often used to add acidity to drinks. However, bartenders are now starting to experiment with other ingredients such as malic acid, lactic acid, and citric acid. These acids can add a tartness to cocktails that is reminiscent of sour candy. If you're looking for a truly unique cocktail experience, then be on the lookout for drinks that use acid as an ingredient.
The future of flavour: cocktail tastes!
Another exciting trend in the world of craft cocktails is the use of new flavours. Bartenders are always on the lookout for new and interesting flavours to add to their drinks. Some of the most popular flavours that are being used in cocktails right now include Earl Grey tea, lavender, and rosemary. These flavours can add a touch of elegance to any drink. If you're looking for something truly unique, then be sure to ask your bartender about what new flavours they're using in their cocktails.
Finally, pre-batched cocktails are becoming increasingly popular. This trend is especially convenient for those who want to enjoy a craft cocktail but don't have the time to make one from scratch. Pre-batched cocktails are made in advance and can be stored in a refrigerator for up to two weeks (or sometimes longer). All you need to do is pour them over ice and enjoy! If you're looking for a convenient way to enjoy a craft cocktail, then pre-batched cocktails are the way to go.
There are also a new wave of pre-made cocktails, some of which are great quality. Brands like Moth have put out some great products that make it easy to make classic cocktails at home without any fuss. And now PaPo's, famous for being the UK's first mobile tequila bar, is about to launch a range of pre-mixed bottled cocktails.
The future of cocktails: tequila and mezcal!
Tequila and mezcal are also playing a big role in the future of cocktails. These spirits are becoming increasingly popular, and bartenders are starting to experiment with them in new and interesting ways. If you're looking for a truly unique cocktail experience, then be sure to ask your bartender about what tequila and mezcal cocktails they're serving.
