The Evolution of Cocktails: From Manual Dosing to Digital Dosing with DrDrink's Cocktail Machine

Throughout history, cocktails have been more than just simple drinks; they have reflected culture, society, and innovation. From the earliest rudimentary mixes of spirits, sugar, and bitters to today’s sophisticated creations, cocktails have evolved alongside people’s tastes and expectations. Each era has introduced its own set of ingredients and techniques, turning bartending into a true arena of experimentation and creativity.

However, in recent decades, a new player has entered the cocktail scene: technology. It didn’t just come to change the way cocktails are prepared, but also to redefine the experience of savoring them. From advanced cooling and filtering equipment to digital dispensers that measure ingredients down to the milliliter, technology has raised the bar in the cocktail world, promising an unbeatable experience every time.

Thus, while we nostalgically recall the days when cocktails were manually mixed in clandestine bars, we appreciate the innovations that allow us to savor perfectly crafted drinks today, prepared with digital precision.

The Prohibition Era: The Birth of Modern Cocktails

The 1920s were marked by a historic event that forever changed the world of alcoholic drinks: Prohibition. As people sought ways to mask the taste of poor-quality alcohol, this gave birth to cocktails like the Martini and Sidecar. In an attempt to combat vices and the social problems associated with alcohol consumption, governments banned the production, sale, and transportation of alcoholic beverages. However, as often happens, the restrictions gave rise to a vibrant underground culture, where secret bars, known as „speakeasies,” thrived in hiding.

In these concealed places, away from the eyes of the law, arose the need to mask the taste of inferior quality alcohol, often produced under dubious conditions. This is where modern cocktails emerged. Ingenious bartenders began experimenting with various ingredients, combining juices, syrups, and bitters to create drinks that not only masked the taste of alcohol but were also delicious.

The Digital Era: How Technology is Changing the Game

In an ever-evolving world, where technology redefines nearly every aspect of our lives, it was inevitable that the cocktail world would be influenced. From traditional bars, where each tool and ingredient had its place, we have moved to modern spaces, where digital technology has become a trusted ally of bartenders.

The real revolution came with digital systems. They have completely transformed the way cocktails are prepared. If in the past, dosing was an art requiring experience and dexterity, now, with the help of technology, each ingredient is added with millimetric precision. The result? Perfect cocktails, every time.
