The Big Trend for 2017: Black Cocktails!

January 6, 2017 – If Santa left coal in your stocking, don’t worry.  As the saying goes, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade”.  In the case of coal in your stocking, you can be totally fashion forward and make black cocktails.

Way back in 2015, black cocktails were trending in London.  It’s taken nearly two ye ars but we’re starting to see the trend here.  Mixologist are having fun adding a few drops of activated charcoal or carbon to their latest creations.  They like the look and they say if used sparingly, it doesn’t alter the flavor.  Based on that, one could add it to just about anything, just for the fun of it.


If black is your thing, you could simply settle for pouring a Guinness or a Nitro Coffee Stout from Sam Adams.  We predict you’ll be seeing a lot of black drinks on the bar as we move into 2017.
