Trend Forecast 2024
Amar shares his predictions for what you’ll be drinking at weddings over the next 12 months…
Gin has been the number one spirit in the industry for the last few years. They’ve been the inspiration for weddings too, where we’ve served a range of gin and tonic bars alongside our bespoke packages. Crafting G&Ts with fresh seasonal fruits, herbs and gin botanicals is a guest pleaser.
For 2024 as an alternative to gin, there’ll be a move towards tequila. We’ve seen a rise in guests asking for Tequila cocktails or Tequila as a mixer with soda. In response we’ve created a range of tequila cocktails. My favourite is the spicy margarita, using 100% agave tequila, fresh lime, coriander, red chilli and agave this cocktail is going to be on 80% of our 2024 menus.
Just like other aspects of life, sustainability is now a priority across the wedding industry including drinks. Sustainable cocktails are drinks that harmonise with nature, from using seasonal ingredients like fruits and herbs to creating less wastage and conserving energy when making them.
This means using seasonal fresh fruits that are locally sourced to make our purees and using preserving methods like dehydration to create garnishes for future events. For example, there’s a lot of lemon and lime waste in cocktails, they are thrown out after a couple of squeezes, however but they can be kept, dehydrated and used as edible garnish.
Our menus may change each season to reflect seasonal produce, but the quality will remain the same.
