While it is not uncommon to find alcohol in beloved recipes, giving it a fun and unique twist by including it in everyday ingredients and foods is an exciting way to elevate the eating experience.
Brands are experimenting with alcohol brands to create a fusion of artisanal flavors for a unique, artisanal, and sometime indulgent touch. These new recipes are crafted carefully to ensure the flavors are a perfect synergy of food and drink.
BEER BEYOND BEER
Millennials enjoy trying new and innovative beer recipes and styles. Outside the craft beer category, any brand can use flavor and product innovation to excite Millennial consumers, particularly if the new product or flavor gives these consumers the opportunity to try something entirely new.
ELEVATING WITH ALCOHOL
Whether adding a delicate note or packing a punch, alcohol can elevate both sweet and savory condiments. The complex flavors of liquor, beer, and wine have inspired producers to come up with award-winning twists on classic condiments for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Craft spirits can enhance the flavor of traditional sauces and condiments. Consider high-end, premium spirits such as cognac and whiskey paired with fruits such as orange and apple.
Beers and authentic brews provide the taste of a refined aging process that is difficult to replicate. These sauces are sophisticated, memorable, and create a special occasion out of any meal.
Flavors include aged beers and spirits, such as barrel-aged and infusions into a variety of bases such as mustard or even soy sauce.
Using the flavor profile of wines for sauces is not unheard of, but by making craft batches that are unique and unmatched, flavor profiles are elevated and refined.
Flavors include bright hints of infused citrusy wine, wine flavorings (i.e. rose) and hot/spice forward variations.
