Here’s a question: what do the recently departed David Bowie and Joe Gilmore have in common? Our answer? The two great men both pushed boundaries and celebrated life beyond earth. Issue 18 of The Cocktail Lovers magazine is dedicated to them– Gilmore, the longest serving bartender at the legendary American Bar at The Savoy who created the Moonwalk cocktail, and Bowie the trailblazer, the other-worldly star man who made us question whether there was life on Mars.

With their pioneering spirit in mind, we’re heading to space. Well, not really but we’ve used that as the theme for our first issue of the year…

To begin with, we ask six forward thinkers for their thoughts on what and how we will be drinking in 10 years time and examine a glass made specially for space travellers.

Then it gets literal, with Julian De Féral looking at venues with amazing spaces, Rebecca Milford checking out space saving tips for home bars and photographer/illustrator Edd Leigh setting 11 movers and shakers in a zero gravity environment as they talk about their bold new moves in our Watch This Space feature.

The future is very much in focus, for us and Alex Kratena and Simone Caporale who left the Artesian at the end of last year to pursue their solo project. We talk to them about their plans for 2016 and beyond while Ben Norum predicts the key trends coming to London bars in the next 12 months.
