Welcome the party season with the hippest cocktails in town. Check out what Sweta Mohanty from Aspri Spirits picks out as five important cocktail trends
Is mixing your thing? Do cocktails make you kooky? Looking forward to whipping up some mean cocktails this New Year? Boy, do we have the right thing for you! At the FBAI Dialogues, Sweta Mohanty from Aspri Spirits outlined the five most important cocktail trends to watch out for in the coming year.
Here’s hoping that this trend never runs out of style. The culinary world always swears by the magic fresh produce can create! Full flavoured and robust, fresh ingredients can also bring a world of difference to cocktails and add a lot of depth and complexity to their flavours. Sweta mentions a haldi doodh made from freshly ground turmeric and almonds, mixed with milk… and served with a dash of whiskey!
Don’t have the right bitters and aromatics for your cocktail party this weekend? Fear not. Stock up on Indian spices such as star anise, cinnamon and cloves, which are making a big splash in the world of cocktails – such as a gin punch served in a nice English cup and saucer with all the Indian spices in it!
Ice is one of the most important parts of making and serving a cocktail. This humble ingredient gets fancy this season with crafted, artisanal ice that is moulded into different shapes and cuts. Picture an old-fashioned glass with a diamond shaped ice floating in the drink. Simply splendid!
Low Alcohol Cocktails
What’s the point, you ask? Well, it derives from an increasing awareness of eating and drinking healthy. There’s a growing fascination for kale, quinoa and avocado in the recent years, and it’s no surprise that cocktails are getting healthier too.
Low Sugar Cocktails
Those with a sweet tooth can still look forward to downing their favourite tipples because low sugar doesn’t mean less sweet; it just means substituting it for a healthier alternative. Honey and jaggery are some of the more nutritious alternatives that are taking mixology by storm.
