Non-Alcoholic Beverage Trends for 2014

The summer season is upon us and everyone is in search of a nice dining location where they can relax and enjoy the sunshine and warm weather. While some people tend to look for a little bit of alcohol in their summertime beverages, others just want a cool glass that invigorates the senses instead of dehydrating the body. The rest of the dining industry is catching on to this sentiment, which is reflected in the high availability of crafted non-alcoholic drinks.

Artisanal, handcrafted beverages are all the rage in boutique restaurants, small burger joints and mom-and-pop ice cream shops across the U.S. Sustainable farming advocates can enjoy fresh, local ingredients which are used to create seasonal flavors. Health-conscious consumers will be happy to know that most of these beverages are made with cane sugar instead of the increasingly unpopular high fructose corn syrup.

Specialty iced tea

Traditional iced tea is widely regarded as a staple of summertime beverages, but many people want a little variety in their selection. Patrons want to see more iced tea options on a restaurant’s menu. The Thai-style version of the beverage, for example, incorporates creamer. Sweet Southern-style tea uses full of cane sugar and a dash of baking soda to weaken the bitterness of the plain tea. Specialty iced teas are only limited by your imagination and are best served from one of Rosseto Serving Solutions’s top-of-the-line beverage dispensers. High-end acrylic containers and durable stainless steel frames provide the perfect combination of function and form for your dining location.

Coconut water

The refreshing liquid found within coconuts is quickly becoming a favorite for customers looking for a tropical escape. Coconut water is low in calories, naturally fat- and cholesterol-free and is one of the most thirst-quenching beverages a person can drink.

Offering these non-alcoholic options throughout the summer season is a sure way to attract new clients and customers to your business location.
