Favorites In Cocktails

What's old is new again. Many of the hottest cocktails served in today's leading bars and restaurants are actually those favorites from centuries ago. These classic cocktails, including standards such as the Negroni, Manhattan, and Gin & Tonic, are more popular than ever. "There is a definite return to the classic cocktails among today's consumers. These drinks are delicious and exude a unique elegance and nostalgia," stated James Moreland, master mixologist for Bombay Sapphire gin.

What's making these classic cocktails--which are made with the timeless spirits of gin and Scotch--so popular today is the new twist that bartenders and spirits aficionados are putting on them. Top bartenders are keeping the integrity of these cocktails while invigorating them with fresh techniques and subtle ingredients, sparking a new hint of flavor to tantalize the taste buds. It is this new crop of "classics with a twist" that is taking over at dinner parties and appearing all over cocktail menus.

One such cocktail is the Supersonic Gin & Tonic. It is made with Bombay Sapphire gin, tonic and a splash of fresh lemonade. This flavorful cocktail, ideal for warm summer days, maintains the classic line of the gin & tonic while providing a modern spin, enhanced by the clean, crisp taste of Bombay Sapphire gin, long a favorite of mixologists due to its perfectly balanced flavor. Today, the brand's signature Supersonic Gin & Tonic benefits from this smooth flavor profile, while giving consumers a new reason to enjoy an old favorite.
