Have always liked Gin and Tonic and the last few years have meant its more available and you feel less like you need to wear a cravat when ordering or drinking one, I remember sharing a couple of G and T's in the past with some very posh folk and thinking it was awesome but they were driving an S Type Jag and did actually wear a Cravat, I thought it was a myth but they exist, or did, he died recently and I felt bad as that breed were dying out.

So, we have perhaps reached peak Gin, many different flavours, loads of "Artisan" Tonics and gin filled Baubles for the Christmas tree, it wont die off back to the odd older gent or lady ordering one and looking like a relic from the seventies but its had its day.

Prossecco appeared and that has perhaps died back a little, as much as anything, cheap, fizzy that gets you battered ever will, thats the fantastic, universal thing about booze, it all does the same thing, but critically it needs to be fashionable. Vodka had its moment and died back, loads of flavours, posh ones like Grey Goose.

So, what will be the next thing to appear as a new drink, or re-appear as the latest thing ?

Martini ?
Cinzano ?
Campari ?
Watneys Red Barrell ?
Blended Whiskies ?
Emva Cream ?
Double Diamond ?
Taboo ?
Mirage ?
Midori ?
Advocaat ?
Quatro ? not booze but it was ace


Basically, whats cheesy and really unfashionable now ?

If we ever go independent we'll need to punt a shed load more whisky to stay solvent, so I say blends. A few new cocktails, someone on Love Island drinking Teacher's and we're all set.

Personally I think rum will be the next big thing, nice and sweet so easy on the palate and lots of variations and cocktails allready available.

If whisky can shake off its dusty image & appeal to the youngsters then you never know.

I heard today that thanks to Game of Thrones and the like that Mead is becoming very popular and may be the next big thing.

I've heard rum being mentioned, there are more rums being released but ultimately they still taste like rum but just have differing intensities of that rum flavour; the "base" flavour is too strong, rich and heavy, to enable differing and obvious flavourings..

I'm a rum drinker and apart from the awful spiced versions I don't think there is much more that can be done to make rum different and exciting to capture the fashionable and trendy market.

Martini and Campari are still widely drunk, mixed with gin as the Negroni.

I think tequila may have its moment

The stuff we’ve got over here isn’t great, it’s so much better (and more drinkable) in Mexico, could be a possibility
