The next trendy drink?

I was reading this today (What Does Your Drink Say About You?), and it got me wondering a bit.... What do you think the next trendy drink will be?

I mean, I can remember when the tequila craze was wiping out the agave fields, that's given rise to the whole vodka thing (with people making vodkas out of things that vodka was never made out of before, but I guess it's ALL vodka when it's first distilled. However, I digress....). So what's next? The article above mentions the Manhattan. I could actually see that happening, since I've noticed a lot of new varieties of bourbon popping up in the past year or so (not that I'm complaining about that!)

So what do you think, what will replace the current martini craze as the next trendy drink?

John

PS - I'd have made it a poll, but I have no idea what other drinks to put on there!

Around here, alot more young people seem to be drinking Old Fashions - ick if you ask me but to each there own. However, it's not an easily changeable drink other than a few things (sweet, with cherries vs. olives, etc...) so it might be not be as long in favor since its always the same, you know?

Just what I've noticed here ...

i'd agree that it's gonna be a whisky or bourbon drink. i think the mojito boat has sailed already.

oh, you forgot the 'tini craze, which is slowly coming to an end with pomegranite, chocolate, and some weird asian or tropical fruits.

I am anything but trendy. I don't like to drink anything I can't see through.

My cold weather drink is Crown Royal (not Royal Crown) on the rocks. In the hot weather it's Tanq and tonic.

I disagree. maybe in trendy places like NYC, but here in the sticks people are still learning about mojitos. I have known about them for years and years, but I still run into people who have never heard of them believe it or not.

Anyway, to answer johns question, I think rum will replace vodka next. I think we will start to see a lot of ultra premium rums, sipping rums, not mixing rums.

Ahmm! Well the OGD Bottled in Bond @ 100 proof. or the OGD 114 are ok bourbons. However; you being a man of means, with a sophisticated palate, may want to consider something from a higher shelf. Maybe a Wild Turkey 101 or one of the other Wild Turkey Expressions. Then there is Baker's, and Booker's that are sure to open up your taste buds!

MM certanly has it's following, I have a bottle, and drink it at times. It is good bourbon it just doesn't make my personal top 10 list. Which seems to change from time to time!

"A man of means"....a man of considerable wealth
