The Cocktail Lovers Magazine Issue 48



Inside The Togetherness Issue of The Cocktail Lovers magazine

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Annnnnd we’re back! We won’t go into the whys and wherefores of why we didn’t publish a January-March issue (ahem, Covid has had an impact on independent publications too you know) but what we will say is, we haven’t been idle – we’ve given the magazine a bit of a freshen up and we’re launching a brand new podcast. Woo-hoo!

But first, what’s in this issue? We’re so glad you asked. This is where we focus on the importance of human connection, our need for togetherness.

Sure the past year has forced us to press pause, escape the busyness and noise but as Dr Gary Wood, a psychologist who specialises in such things, tells us in the magazine: “Our behaviour, thoughts, even personality traits are shaped by our sense of belonging to a group.” Little wonder the past 12 months or so have left us feeling discombobulated.

As we ease our way out of the various lockdowns and back into bars, pubs and restaurants, we celebrate togetherness, one of the key traits of hospitality.

We talk to top bods in the drinks industry for their views on everything from working in teams, with Ryan Chetiyawardana, to the importance of community with Matteo Zed in Rome, Ben Reed in London and Valentino Longo in Miami. We also hear from friends, family and husband-and-wife teams working together, and showcase the best vessels for serving Punch – the ultimate sharing drink of all time.

The theme of togetherness also works its way into how to pair cocktails with food, with more pairings coming under the spotlight as we look at the best new mixers created to complement your favourite spirits. There’s a chance to *Send A Friend To The Seychelles when we’re allowed to travel and until then, we round up with the best bottled cocktails created for sharing across the world.

And as for the podcast mentioned earlier. Sign up to get details for when the first episode drops later this month.
