Espresso martini named nation’s favourite cocktail

Espresso Martini UK Favourite Cocktail

The espresso martini has been named the UK’s favourite cocktail, according to the nation’s leading recipe site.

The Just Eat for Business’s Cocktail Championship crowned the espresso martini after it boasted the highest average rating compared to the number of reviews left, making it the best cocktail overall.

London-based Mixologist Harp Mann said: “Better bars have resulted in the better quality of drink and that has helped create huge interest in cocktails again over the past few years.

“Cocktails offer theatre, a treat, opulence, fun, good times – essentially an experience – so there’s the social element of them. Also mixed drinks offer a great way to experience new flavours, new spirits and aperitifs, more premium or better quality ingredients too.”

The UK’s top cocktails

  1. Espresso Martini
  2. Mojito
  3. Piña Colada
  4. Sex On The Beach
  5. Long Island Iced Tea
  6. White Russian
  7. Frozen Margarita

Is your takeaway cup biodegradable?

Is your takeaway cup biodegradable?

Unlike a regular takeaway cup, biodegradable cups have the ability to degrade in a non-harmful way.

These cups are eco-friendlier alternatives commonly made with a single PLA coating. This coating is a bioplastic, derived from plant-based materials such as corn starch or sugarcane.

What are bioplastics?

Bioplastics are made from plants unlike regular plastics that are made from oil.

Unlike oil based plastics, which stay present as waste for many years, bioplastics are renewable and can biodegrade within 12 weeks. The carbon footprint of bioplastic is also much lower than petroleum based plastics.

How can I check my cup is biodegradable?

Manufacturers mark biodegradable cups on the print.

Is your takeaway cup biodegradable?

If you are still uncertain, ask the business or supplier.

Where should I dispose my cup?

You can dispose of cups with your food waste and have everything collected together to be taken to a composting facility. Here, the cups will biodegrade into compost in less than 12 weeks.

We recommend checking with your local council to see that food waste goes to a composting facility. If they don’t offer the facility, you can compost your cup at home.

What are the benefits of a biodegradable cup?

  • Helps fight waste, pollution and reduces fossil fuel usage
  • Chemical-free cups are safe to use
  • Affordable for businesses
  • Promotes corporate social responsibility (CSR)
  • Boost business reputation

What takeaway cups are biodegradable?

At Event Supplies, we offer biodegradable cups in many shapes and sizes.

Aqueous cups

Double wall PLA cups
  • Single wall biodegradable cups (4oz, 6oz, 8oz, 12oz and 16oz)

How this Doncaster pizzeria navigated through lockdown

The Pizza Trail Lockdown Business Takeaway

The hospitality sector was effectively brought to a halt last year. Many businesses across the nation were quick to change their business models following a nationwide lockdown.

One shining example is Doncaster-based pizzeria The Pizza Trail, whose owner saw no option but to transform operations to navigate through the testing times.

Oliver, owner and chef at The Pizza Trail, told us: “Lockdown hit us with a real bang in March 2020. Overnight I got laid off from my full-time head chef job, so attention turned to turning my event catering business into a full time job.”

“Then we started to lose all our summer public events and the 20 weddings we had booked for the late summer. We had to do something fast.”

To continue operating during lockdown, the mobile pizzeria turned into a pop-up takeaway service and began serving villages around Doncaster. Business started to grow each month and Oliver saw signs of recovery.

The Pizza Trail Lockdown Business Takeaway

The Pizza Trail also made use of single-use disposable catering supplies to serve customers. Using single-use packaging would help minimise unnecessary contact and help prevent the spread of covid-19.

Oliver said: “We are using soup cups to make our homemade cheesecake pots with weekly changing flavours. When we started to make them, we went from serving a few desserts a week. Now some customers are coming to us just for our cheesecake pots.”

Soup Cups For Desserts
