Water Mixology Bars and Designer Beverages—Are You on Trend?

Water Mixology Bars and Designer Beverages—Are You on Trend?

We tell customers how a Natura Water unit can help them effectively put water on the menu. A hotel at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., is demonstrating how, with a little creativity, water becomes an amenity guests are happy to pay for. 

According to an article in Hotel F&B magazine, the Radisson Blu hotel began offering its H20 Mixology Bar to meeting-goers in 2016. Bespectacled “water doctors” outfitted in white lab coats create healthy, fruit-infused waters (popular recipes include strawberry jalapeno and honeydew sage) for attendees during breaks. Meeting planners can choose four different beverage types each day, at a cost of $20 per person. 

In the article, Radisson Blu director of banquets Allen Plante says presentation is a major factor in selling the experience: 

“Because we eat and drink with our eyes, I wanted it to have the feeling of a bar you’d see for alcohol, but be driven by pure water and fresh ingredients—garden to glass,” Plante says, with no small amount of enthusiasm about his topic. “It had to be very visual and fun … We display the citrus, herbs, and vegetables. People can watch the product being made right in front of them.” 

We think Allen is really on to something … with one big exception. He’s still using bottled water for his beverage base, when he would get better wow factor—and better ROI—with a commercial sparkling water system like Natura! It makes an ideal hotel water dispenser. 

We encourage hotels, resorts, restaurants, and anywhere groups of people gather, to consider harnessing the power of a sparkling water system to get more out of their tap water. You’re paying for the utility, so it might as well earn its keep! 

The effervescence of sparkling water paired with fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and juices can create eye-pleasing, thirst-quenching, health-conscious beverages that turn ordinary tap water into a profit center. 

 A Natura remote tap or counter top sparkling water system can fit into your existing setup with little accommodation required, putting your establishment at the head of the designer beverage curve.
