Top 100 Drinking Trends in December

From Vegan Pumpkin Cocktails to Festive Vino Milkshakes

— December 26, 2014 — Lifestyle
Alike the spirit of ushering in a new year, the December 2014 drinking ideas are all about reinvention. Experimentation with the appearance and flavor of familiar drinks like coffee, lemonade, tea, spirits and even water are causing perceptions of what is luxurious, healthy or indulgent to shift, making it possible to take delight in a favorite beverage in a whole new way. A great example of this is Charlie’s Natural Sodas, which are disrupting the carbonated beverage market with its unique brand of sodas made with superfood ingredients and "no fake stuff."

With December being one of the hottest times of the year for travel, there’s Stephen Kenn’s Travel Cocktail Kit and the Carry On Cocktail Kit to keep jetsetters in high spirits. For those who are keeping their travel adventures local this season, the Bookman coffee cup holder is a smart bike attachment to keep you cozy on the go.
