Health and Sustainability
Health and environmental sustainability aren’t just popular in the restaurant industry- they’ve found their way into distilleries and bars as well. Today, you’ll find superfoods, medicinal herbs, teas, and cold-press juices used to create cocktails that could double as health tonics. You can wind down with a hand-crafted cocktail and do something good for your body! Plus, with sustainable cocktails, you can also do something good for the environment. Sustainable cocktails are made with locally-sourced ingredients that have a minimal impact on the environment.
2018 saw the rise of tiki cocktails and the fall of sugary concoctions. This year the trend continues, and you can expect to see more refined vintage rums with nuanced flavor profiles, and dynamic brandy catalogues with different fruit expressions.
Asian flavors are also gaining popularity in the 2019 scene. You may see more baiju cocktails on bar menus over the next year, as the popular Chinese grain alcohol pairs well with more familiar liquors, like whiskey and rum. Japanese gin is poised to become more well known, as it presents an elegantly subtle and unique flavor derived from unusual botanicals like yuzu citrus, shiso (Japanese basil, from the mint family) and green tea.
Kentucky Bourbons and Irish Whiskeys also continue to dominate the handcrafted cocktail world, along with the more convenient cocktails on draft.
Social media continues to reign supreme in 2019, and you can expect your favorite bars and restaurants to follow suit. User generated content is a powerful tool these days, as the best recommendations come from customers and word of mouth. Expect to see over the top cocktails and Insta-worthy dishes begging for a share and a hashtag. You’ll probably see more places pushing for online reviews as well, as more and more people go searching for real commentary from real customers.
