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’.
