Where to get your Dry January fix

As trends go, very few have had as big an impact on the drinks industry than mindfulness. Mindful drinking exploded towards the end of the previous decade, however, it feels as though the spirit industry took a while to catch up. Only recently have brands such as Stryyk and Seedlip provided liquids good enough for bartenders to make cocktails that rival their regularl cocktails for taste and complexity.

The growth of low & no cocktails has seen a huge growth in the number of drinkers participating in dry January each month. With over 4 million taking part in 2018 and numbers growing in 2019, 2020 was is expected to be the driest January yet.

If you are one of the mindful individuals struggling to find a mocktail that comes close to satisfying your needs, we've got you covered. Take a look at some of the venues across the country with an impressive no/low selection.

 

American Bar - The Savoy, London

Drake & Morgan - Kings Cross, London

The smugglers cove - Liverpool

Foundry Project - Manchester

The Alchemist - Birmingham

New Years Eve cocktails

Wherever you are celebrating the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, chances are you will be entering the new year with a glass of something in your hand. With Auld Lang Syne blaring out the boombox it would be rude not celebrate in style. It’s not a recent tradition either. In fact, it’s a really, really old one. Rumour has it, Julius Caesar celebrated the Vernal Equinox with the roman equivalent of a glass of champagne. 

 

 

As you can imagine, Champagne is the drink of choice on New Years Eve. This year, perhaps more than most recently, it’s important to include sparkling serves on your New Year's Eve cocktail menus. According to CGA’s Q4 quarterly mixed drinks report, Spritz serves are now in the top 10 most popular cocktail styles, growing 1.2pp. Similarly, ‘fizzy’ cocktails are an increasingly popular taste profile amongst consumers, growing 4pp to 31%.

 

With the big day under two weeks away, we’ve decided to put together some of our favourite ‘sparkling serves’.
