The new decade is bringing a bunch of new food trends along, but we’re also getting pretty amazing news from the beverage world. Check out some of the rising drink trends we’ll be seeing everywhere in 2020 and beyond.


Kombucha experienced a big boom in 2019, and it’s going to become a part of our daily lives in the new decade. This fermented tea drink usually contains sweetened black or green tea, but additional spices and fruits can also be added to the mix.


Alcoholic beverages are slowly going out of style, and they’re being replaced with healthier alternatives. You can now enjoy a brunch or a night out sipping on booze-free mocktails, which look just as good as the real thing.

Coconut water is also highly beneficial for cardiovascular health as it can help to reduce blood pressure and increase healthy circulation.
