So naturally after "Something Old" last week with our #ThirstyThursday blog post, we needed to follow that up with "Something New" today. So, what is new and trendy in cocktails? It looks like the trends for cocktails center around flavored spirits, savory cocktails, tequila and reviving Class drinks with a new twist. Here are some of our favorite "new" drinks. We hope that you will try one or all of these drinks and let us know what you think!

This one is called the Pizza Martini! This contains house-made basil-infused vodka, tomato juice, aged balsamic vinegar, house-made ghost pepper infused vodka, roasted garlic, fresh basil, porcini mushroom powder and it is topped with a mozzerella & Parmigiano cheese foam! (Photo credit: Trattoria Neapolis)

This drink called the Malacca Flip is a new gin drink created by Nicolas Oliviera uses Tanqueray Malacca Gin. Using an egg white creates a nice texture the hibiscus syrup makes this drink a fabulous color.

There are so many flavored vodkas out there and Glazed Donut Vodka caught our attention! We here in New England have a special affinity for Dunkin Donuts Coffee and this drink would be a GREAT way to showcase a great pairing - Coffee & Donuts!
