Great drinks aren’t always timeless.

You won’t get many orders for hot toddies in August or frozen margaritas in February. Why? It’s not just because no one wants a frozen cocktail during a blizzard. These popular cocktails include flavors and spirits that are popular during specific times of the year. While every bar program has to figure out what works best for them, it’s always a good idea to adapt your menu based on seasonal flavors. Here’s some examples of how to adjust your cocktail menu for the seasons.
