    Current Cocktail Trends to Inspire Your Bar Menu

    Last updated 5 years ago

    While the perfect bar stools may enhance the look of your bar or restaurant, the right cocktails have the power to turn it into a must-visit place in town. With so many fabulous and innovative drink choices to offer to your clients, it can be hard to narrow down the possibilities to create your signature menu. Here are a few current cocktails trends to inspire you as you develop your menu:


    It's safe to say that 2013 is the year of rum-based cocktails. As rum makes its return to high-end bar and restaurant menus, bartenders are looking for fun and creative ways to make it interesting. One of the top rum drinks being showcased at the moment is the classic daiquiri, which quenches the palette using three simple ingredients: rum, lime juice, and syrup.


    While your patrons are sitting back and relaxing in their cozy bar stools, why not entice them with a delicious brandy-based drink? Brandy, cognac, and armagnac are making a major comeback in the dining world, as diners crave hard alcohol options that are closely entwined with classic wine flavors. Try a crisp and satisfying flavor out on your summer menu, such as an apple brandy.


    One bitter that was long seen as pricy and unattainable is now becoming more and more prominent in American establishments. Suze, a French brand of bitters, is now available for purchase in the United States, which is causing quite a buzz among bar owners and restaurateurs. Offer one or two fusion cocktails that combine the bitter flavor of Suze with sweet or tangy tastes.

    Once you've created a cocktail menu that reflects your personal taste, visit Casual Dining & Bar Stools to address your casual dining furniture needs. We carry contemporary, traditional, outdoor, and even custom bar stools that are sure to complement the décor of your establishment.

    Mixing a Proper Old Fashioned for Your Whiskey-Loving Patrons

    Last updated 5 years ago

    From bacon to chocolate, there are plenty of out-of-the-box ingredients finding their way into cocktails these days. However, several classic cocktails such as the Old Fashioned still remain as basic yet beloved drink options. If you're interested in featuring an Old Fashioned on your menu, make sure you have sugar, Angostura bitters, club soda, ice, and a tasty whiskey on hand.

    To fashion your Old Fashioned, mix the sugar with the bitters and a teaspoon of club soda before adding ice and two ounces of whiskey. Check out this video to find out how you can make the cocktail even more delicious with a splash of lemon peel.
