Let’s face it: whether it’s in the way we dress, in the music, movies, food or drinks, the ‘90s nostalgia is everywhere around us. The world of mixology is no exception: in fact,  the most beloved drinks from that period are now being rediscovered.

A cool example? Cringe Cocktails, so called by the British Times newspaper the great classics of the era  are making a fantastic comeback. Caribbean, fresh and inviting, among them they feature the unmissable  Daiquiri, the  Mojito version with no mint but with rum and lime, and  the Martini, a classic and iconic cocktail traditionally made with gin and dry vermouth.

Other unforgettable drinks of the ‘90s include the Vodka Cranberry, a simple yet refreshing cocktail that combines vodka and cranberry juice, and the Passion Fruit Martini, a fruity and vibrant cocktail that has gained popularity for its exotic flavor and visually appealing presentation.

Finally, you cannot talk about the 1990s without mentioning the Cosmopolitan, a cocktail made with vodka, triple sec, lime juice and blueberry juice, known worldwide thanks to the hit series “Sex and the City.”
