Drinks Live Theatre
Liqueurs, always at the bottom of every drinks list if even listed at all. They play second fiddle to spirits in cocktails and are placed in a box labelled modifiers. Why do we do this? Is it the sugar? Is it the overwhelming, almost limitless number of flavours? Have we been brainwashed trough or education? We will take a journey through the history of flavouring alcohol, explore the different methods and try to identify why liqueurs are treated this way. We look at the rise in aperitivo and low abv drinks, we discuss using liqueurs as an 'anchor' in cocktails and ponder what the future holds for liqueurs and hopefully modify attitudes, theory and use of liqueurs.
