‘Tis the season for cocktails

Luscombe is promoting serves

FROM sophisticated soft drink serves to mocktails and cocktails, a raft of drinks firms have shared cocktail serves with SLTN in time for Christmas.

Devonshire-based soft drinks producer, Luscombe Drinks, which has released a range of festive-themed soft drinks, reckons operators can stir up sales with its suggested serve, Festive Storm. While the firm behind cocktail and puree brand, Funkin, also stressed the importance of cocktails throughout winter, urging operators to fully capitalise on the increased demand with seasonally-appropriate serves. And glassware firm Artis’ resident mixologist has whipped up a Christmas Spritz.
