As this year comes to an end and a new one begins, the festive season is in full swing making it prime time for maximising profits and exceeding targets. Customers will be flying through the doors for office parties and family meals, creating great opportunity to push specials and boost revenue. And what better way to bring in extra takings than to create a few festive themed cocktails.
Of course being quirky and unique is great but you need to start with the basics. An ice crusher is an absolute must and will provide you access to an essential ingredient that goes into the majority of cocktails. Our range of high quality, durable ice crushers are perfect for many commercial catering businesses from clubs and bars to restaurants and pubs and are brought to you by renowned and respected brands such as Waring, Santos and Ital. These machines will permit you to have immediate access to crushed ice when mixing cocktails, allowing you to speed up making and serving times.
Glass rimmers are also vital, this piece of equipment will enable you to apply a thin strip of juice around the lip of a glass ready for you to dip in salt or sugar. Not only will this add an interesting twist to the taste of the cocktail, it also makes the glass look instantly more attractive. This technique works well with martini and margarita glasses so why not add a festive twist and try out a mince pie martini.
Perhaps the most essential part to any cocktail is for it to be thoroughly blended, a shaker is the quickest and best way to mix ingredients. We have a great selection of premium quality shakers and our sleek copper model will ensure you are bang on trend.
