Cocktail innovation: spices and savoury notes are the flavour profiles to watch on both coasts of the US
Cocktails are critical offerings in the on-premise in Los Angeles and New York City, but it’s the sophistication of savoury ingredients that’s gaining traction.
Within six years hard sparkling water, also known as hard seltzers, have grown to account for nearly half (43%) of all US mixed drinks - what impact is this trend having on the wider drinks market both in the US and globally?
With the RTD category booming, carbonation is adding zing and nuance to cocktails both on-premise and within the RTD space.
