In our climate here in Brisbane, we need to keep our fluids up! What’s your favourite non-alcoholic tipple? As we approach more sweltering weather, let’s take a look at the most popular non-alcoholic beverages available on the market.
Most of them aren’t too surprising, but there are many interesting “twists” on common drinks that make life just that little bit more refreshing.
Only one place to start, really. Every living organism on the planet needs water to survive; it may be drunk from a puddle or the finest sparkling mineral water sampled from a custom-designed bottle – but it’s still water. A wide range of flavoured waters, as well as still and sparkling bottled waters are available today.
Tea has been drunk around the world for centuries and was widely used in China thousands of years ago. It’s maybe the English heritage here in Australia that has made the tea-drinking tradition live on; hot black and green teas are very popular but, in warmer climates like ours, cold, iced and flavoured teas are also very popular.
Prefer coffee to tea? You’re not alone – the Australian coffee industry is booming. As well as supping a hot cup of your favourite brewed beans in the morning to get that much-needed boost, did you know that there are a range of chilled coffees available that can be enjoyed throughout the day as the temperatures climb?
Fruit juices are drunk around the world, from being picked and enjoyed straight from the tree to being poured from a carton or bottle to drink with breakfast. The most popular fruit juice remains fresh orange juice, but a wide variety of other fruit drinks and long life versions are available today, all using fruit juice as their base.
With Australia producing some of the finest dairy products in the world, we had to include this one. When you think of milk you think of the white stuff, but there are plenty of great variations, with flavoured milk and soy milk varieties now available.
Ice cold sodas are still very popular. Huge brands like Schweppes and Coca-Cola tend to dominate the market with household names that everyone recognizes from the supermarket, convenience store or milk bar.
Energy drinks are the perfect pick-me-up after a hard day, or to recover from a bout of exercise. They come in many varieties and will replenish lost energy rapidly.
