36 Festive Beverage Innovations

From Indulgent Easter Milkshakes to Vegan Eggnog Cartons

— November 29, 2016 — Lifestyle
These festive beverage innovations range from indulgent Easter milkshakes -- like the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry offered by fast food giant McDonald's -- to vegan eggnog drinks that are designed for diet-conscious consumers or those with a lactose intolerance.

In addition to packaged on-the-go beverages that celebrate occasions such as Christmas, Halloween and even Thanksgiving, other standouts include QSR menu items that range from Valentine's Day drink promotions to mint-infused hot chocolates.

Furthermore, examples like branded cocktail menus and signature syrups like Kahlua's Chili Chocolate blend encourage fans of alcoholic beverages to indulge in flavors with a festive feel. Additional innovations in the realm of festive beverage include celebratory beer kits like a Taft's Ale House box set that is modeled to resemble a traditional advent calendar.
