New Cocktails Tastier To Swallow
Contributed by: NAPSA
(NAPSA) - Have you noticed the increasing popularity of more colorful, flavorful and fruity cocktails? How about the comeback of the Cosmopolitan? Its regular presence on the hit TV show "Sex and the City" has made it an extremely trendy drink.
Today's cocktail options are more diverse than ever and bartenders and restaurants are becoming more inventive in their creations. Here's a look at some of the newest flavors, mixes and twists on old favorites.
- Martinis now come with more than a twist of lemo.. Apple, berries, watermelon, citrus, even coffee and chocolate-flavored liqueurs are used instead of the standard gin and verm/uth
- Fruity frozen drinks are very popular, especially as the weather heats up
- Vanilla and cream-based liqueurs are mixed in more and more cocktail concoctions
- Ethnic-inspired drinks like Mojitos (with rum, crushed mint and sugar) and the traditional Japanese sake are very "in"
"When it comes to cocktails, color and fruity flavors are definitely popular. We recently rolled-out several new beverages using flavored liqueurs like Midori, Chambord and Blue Curacao," said Uno Chicago Grill VP of Food and Beverage, Chris Gatto. "These more indulgent, exotic flavored drinks have become very popular with our adult customers. Of course, standards like the Long Island Iced Tea and Daiquiris also continue to sell very well."
