By and large, cocktails and environmental friendliness don’t go hand in hand. From sourcing and shipping the bulk of fresh produce around the globe to the reckless waste of gourmet ingredients, there are numerous concerns thinly disguised beneath that (truly captivating) Cosmopoliton. The demand for natural resource conservation and waste reduction grows with each passing year. But, with cocktails becoming a mainstay with home aficionados and professional bartenders, how can we reduce the environmental impact? If yes, can we make them even more delicious in the process?
