McNamara of Roche Bros. says that craft cocktail mixers will continue to gain momentum in the year ahead, with a focus on clean ingredient labels. "People want cleaner, better-for-you ingredients, even in their cocktails, without the added sugar," she says. Charcuterie and Cheese Strange of Whole Foods singled out char- cuterie as a meat category where "a lot of cool things are happening," including a pro- liferation of local and hyper-local producers, as well as a focus on animal welfare. "Charcuterie is super-hot," she says. Unique imported meats, including por- chetta and culatello, are also increasingly in demand in the U.S., says Strange. She also cites an evolution in the cheese category—aged cheeses have been popular for some time, but fresh cheeses are mak- ing a comeback, she says. In addition, more mixed-milk cheeses—made from a blend of sheep's milk, cow's milk, and/or goat's milk—are expected to be popular in the year ahead. "It's very typical in Europe, and we'll start to see a lot more of that here," notes Strange. She also expects to see more interest in stronger-f lavored cheeses and aromatic cheeses, such as washed-rind varieties. Cheeses meant for grilling are poised to gain in 2019. In addition to grilling hal- loumi cheese, which has long been popular, Strange predicts more grilling done of other varieties of cheese, such as Camembert, kas- seri, and Manouri.
