The cocktail has made a resurgence. Offering sophistication, versatility, timeless class: the cocktail is back and looks to be sticking around for a long time. If you’re planning a party this year, read on to learn three cocktail trends you can expect in 2012. Keeping these tips in mind will ensure that your cocktail party or corporate event impresses even the most particular cocktail connoisseurs.
Attention to Detail
- Small tweaks and fine details contribute immensely to a great cocktail. This is expected to remain true throughout 2012. The right garnishes can bring impressive finishing touches to your beverage selections. If you’re throwing a party this year, stock your bar with live herbs and a range of bitters. These small details will impress your attendees.
- It’s no surprise that good drink ingredients yield a good drink. But when it comes to cocktails, individuality should not be overlooked. Give your guests some drink options that they can’t order at any chain restaurant. Small-scale distributed and locally produced spirits are more popular than ever in cocktail circles. Casked cocktails are another great way to win over your guests, by making them truly feel they a part of a special occasion. If you have the time to prepare, then mix your drinks now, let them age, and pour straight from the barrel on the night of your party.
Sherry, Ma Cherie
- Sherry is the spirit of choice when it comes to mixology’s 2012 season. This fortified Spanish wine allows for numerous cocktail options. If you’re looking to stay ahead of the curve and meet the most contemporary tastes, ensure that sherry finds its way onto your event’s cocktail menu.
