Top Summer Beverage Trends


Searching for the best summer drinks? Stockland Hervey Bay knows the biggest trends when it comes to fun beverages. Check them out! 

Not only are non-alcoholic drinks having a moment this year but so are sustainable sips! If you could sum up summer’s hottest drink trends in one word, it would be: bold. And Stockland Hervey Bay have mastered the three top trends by stocking everything you need to recreate these at your next summer event! Without further ado, these are the seasonal drink trends that are really making a splash.


Alcohol-free gin 

We’re seeing more and more no-alcohol bars popping up and a whole lot of booze-free liquor alternatives. It’s the perfect choice for those that do drink alcohol but are looking at trying to moderate their intake. Whether you’re having a dry January, are tasked as the designated driver, or simply want to avoid the hangover, alcohol-free gin is the way to go! What are you waiting for? Grab some alcohol-free gin at BWS, some tonic water and fresh limes from Coles to make a G&T with no G. Be sure to jump on this beverage trend and impress your alcohol-free friends at your next summer get-together! 


Tip: when entertaining with non-alcoholic gin, seafood is always a save! Snacking on seafood and washing it down with a G&T will create a flavour that will certainly impress your mates.


Bubble tea in a can 

Ever heard of bubble tea in a can? Let us fill you in: it’s the type of drink that’s somewhere between a fancy beverage and a delicious snack. It’s a crazy concoction also known as boba and made with tea-based liquid, flavoured sweeteners, and tapioca pearls. The best thing about bubble tea is that there are so many flavours to choose from – think fruity, milky, sweet, and decadent. And it just got better with Coles stocking it in a can! This drink makes for the ideal addition for your next lunch break and will help you cool down. 


The return of cask wine

Box wine has officially made a comeback in Australia! You’ll be surprised at how good cask wine really is. Not to mention it’s also a sustainable option – once you open a box, the wine will stay fresh for up to six weeks, unlike a bottle that will go sour after just one. Cask wine also happens to produce less carbon emission than a bottle does. Head to BWS to pick up a box and be amazed at its affordability, quality, and sustainability!

It’s time to quench your thirst with these three fun beverage trends that are topping charts this summer – healthier, cleaner, more sustainable, and simply delicious. Not only are non-alcoholic drinks having a moment this year but so are sustainable sips! All that’s left to do now is to try these out for yourself. But how? Simply head into Stockland Hervey Bay and stock up!
