Raise Your Bar with Innovative Cocktails

In Catering,Dinner Parties by Jennifer Nalevanko / March 12, 2018 / 0 Comments

However you say it, no celebration is complete without a toast, and what better way to toast than with a signature cocktail created just for you? Innovative cocktails are fun and easy ways to add some extra personalization to your party or special event. All you need are cocktail ingredients, personalized items to make them special and a creative way to present them.


Step up your bar game at the next event you’re hosting with few different cocktails so everyone has something that they enjoy. Break it down with:


  • Different types of liquor
  • An assortment of beers; light and regular
  • Red, white, and rose wine


Your guests will appreciate the fun touch and the variety.


Whether the cocktails are made with unusual ingredients such as mushrooms, almond fat–washed rum, served in unusual vessels or featuring trendy techniques, we are currently awash in smart, forward-thinking drinks. Here are a few of the most innovative craft cocktails to drink right now.


Jasmine Blossoms Cocktail


This unique Whiskey cocktail is aromatic, citrusy, and easy to drink.  The Whiskey used, Manhattan Moonshine, is a lighter, simpler Whiskey that is aged for less than one hour and so it does not have the heavy barrel flavors that make brown Whiskeys harder to mix.  Enjoy the hint of apricot alongside the fragrant jasmine flavors in this light and summery cocktail.


Bubbly Cocktails


Bubbly is an undeniably timeless tradition, but it’s taking off now more than ever. Everyone’s enjoying champagne and sparkling wine, from people at home to those in the restaurant world. Offering more champagne and bubbles at an event turn everything into a celebration. Mix the champagne or prosecco with fruits, candies, and spices to keep them fun.


The Root to Longevity Cocktail


How often have you seen beets used in a drink? Probably not often, if at all, but they work and they work rather well. In this recipe, a sweetened beet puree steals the show and pairs perfectly with Plymouth Gin, lemon, and mint. It’s a simple recipe and perfect for a fresh from the garden taste.


Carrot Cake Cocktail


It’s time to have a little fun with cake vodka and it’s definitely not the ordinary profile for vodkas of this sort. As the name implies, the drink does attempt to emulate a home-baked carrot cake and it does a fair job at it. The mix includes UV Cake and carrot juice, adding in milk, nutmeg, and cinnamon with a splash of soda to liven it up. If you love carrot cake, you may want to consider this one, just have your juicer ready because carrot juice can be hard to find.
