The fun side of cocktail creation can get lost in a bartender’s search for perfection, here we round up our favourite cocktail names that are out to show the humorous side of the on-trade.
With the on-trade focused on creating the best drinks possible while also tackling issues around waste and sustainability, it can be easy to forget that drinking cocktails is meant to be fun.
The humour in cocktails can show itself through a garish garnish or a tacky tiki mug, but here at The Spirits Business we think the best way to make imbibers smile is a with a witty cocktail name.
From the Llama Del Rey on offer at New York’s Llama Inn to the Gin Wilder served up at London’s Callooh Callay, bartenders around the world have been scratching their heads to concoct a host of pun-filled names for their creations.
