2023 is finally here and if you want to raise a toast to the New Year, how about doing it with one of the trendiest drinks on the market? From mocktails to dirty soda, here are five drinks we’ll be seeing everywhere this year, according to Yelp’s trend forecast.
Non-alcoholic cocktails have been on the rise for quite some time and they’ve made it to countless lists of trend predictions for 2023, including Yelp’s.
Yelp is predicting we’ll get more nostalgic than ever about our food and drink choices this year. Slushies are one of the retro trends making a huge comeback, and your favorite cafés and bars will put them back on the menu in 2023.
Dirty sodas are one of TikTok’s most popular drinks of 2022 and they’re not going anywhere. This Utah classic can be made with soda, cream, flavored syrup, or other sweeteners and it got Olivia Rodrigo’s approval last year.
Yelp is also predicting the rise of several drinks from other cultures, including Hojicha tea—a Japanese green tea that happens to be much sweeter than matcha.
Michelagua is another international drink with a global appeal. It’s a non-alcoholic version of the traditional Mexican cocktail Michelada, usually made with lime juice, chili-based sauces, spices, and chili peppers.
