Cocktail trend: mojitos with a twist
(NC) – What started as a trend in cities like New York and London with bartenders experimenting with interesting combinations of spirits, exotic fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, is now alive and well in Canada.
Master mixologist and bartending consultant, Gavin MacMillan of Bartender One, travels all over the world to gather information about spirit and cocktail trends. MacMillan notes that mojitos, the quintessential warm weather cocktails, are continuing to gain in popularity across Canada.
‘Twisting classic cocktails is the big hit of this summer. The trendsetting mojito which was the ‘must-have’ cocktail last year is having a renaissance as bartenders across the country are creating new mixes like muddled jalapeno and watermelon mojitos,’ says MacMillan.
