A new year brings new cocktails. If you care about fitting in while getting buzzed, here’s the what’s-what for 2019.
According to a survey from the National Restaurant Association’s What’s Hot survey, craft, artisan, and locally produced beverages like wines and spirits are gonna be tops. But that’s not all: craft coffees and sodas for the non-boozers will be the go-to beverage.
"At restaurants and other foodservice operations today, beverages, including wines, spirits, beers, and nonalcoholic drinks are big traffic drivers,” said Hudson Riehle, the Association’s senior vice president of research. “Offering craft liquors, wines, and other beverages, allows restaurants to distinguish their drink programs from their competitors. At the same time, putting a more local, sustainable spin on beverages is particularly appealing to millennials, who, in general, are more apt to support smaller, different, more socially responsible businesses and products.”
Guess we’ll just have to sample one of each. Don’t want to bring any FOMO mojo into 2019!
