The 5 trends that will define the cocktail world in 2016
Get ready, 2016 is loaded with aromas, textures and very eclectic flavours.
1. The classics return in a very “strong” way
Old recipes are a real discovery for the newcomers to the world of cocktails, a world that has more and more followers and that has a lot to do with the popular Gin & Tonic fever.
During the midday, before a late lunch, no one can resist the fact of enjoying classics from Dry Martinis as appetizers, such as a Negronis, a Manhattans or an Americans, without mentioning the famous vermouth.
However, the most curious prefer choosing daring combinations to extend the conversation and appetizers before eating, like a Pisco Sour, Tom Collins, White Russian, Old Fashioned or a simple and effective Whisky.
These recipes have nearly been forgotten. However, the enchanting secret hides behind the art of mixology and a professional bartender or barmaid, responsible of defending the best of each bar and of serving drinks with the most elegant methods and techniques.
2.- We do not forget the other extreme: low alcohol cocktails.
Human beings appear to be full of contrasts and extremes. The new culture of mocktail is giving birth to a very healthy trend, claiming the right to enjoy a great cocktail without having to suffer the consequences of alcohol.
New ingredients and harmonies, familiar combinations and others that still have to be thought, will reach achievements towards a public committed to healthy habits, but that is not willing to sacrifice the cocktail experience.
Our collection of Fresh Fruits Martinis is an example of these type of cocktails, mocktails Collection of Walnuts and those to come will be a delight to the most exquisite palates.
3.- Couples or even better, “Pairings”.
You could see it coming, however, 2016 has consolidated this trend. Gourmet delights with a cocktail, as a couple, it has become a complex and creative evolution of the classic combination of patatas bravas and a beer.
Oysters or Carpaccio with Martinis, a passion fruit Brule with Iberian pig, Frappes with tuna, with a steak tartar, with fresh foie gras and a long creative etcetera.
4.- The return of punch.
A new trend, simple and friendly: sharing delightful cocktails served in the same punch bowl. New? No, it certainly was one of the first basic forms adopted by humans in order to drink cocktails together.
Thanks to punch, cocktails like Sangria and others made by seasonal fruits came to life.
5.- The presentation will be eclectic and even implausible.
2016 will be the year in which cocktails will be drunk with eyes. There will be no bar that serves drinks without an exotic recipient, completely out of context and some combined with extravagant decorations. Eclecticism will be the current that dominates our bars.
The application of innovative cooking techniques will also reach the mixology world. New machinery will come to life in the cocktail industry, such as a Rotaval. Get ready, 2016 is loaded with aromas, textures and very eclectic flavours.
