List Of Beverages We Loved This Year (2023)
Tasty, yummy, brilliant! A list curated with the best beverages of the year. Here are Mishry Top Picks – List of Beverages of the year.
The pandemic era was a bit like being in the middle of a murder mystery. No one knows what is happening or what will happen next. What we do know is within this pandemic, food provided us with some much-needed comfort. Due to the lockdown and restrictions, we all were working from home for a major chunk of the year and reviewed products through video calls. Some products were a big hit while some were passable. This list of beverages, from all that we have reviewed, will make you want to add to your shopping list.
Here is a list of beverages we tasted and reviewed in the past year; the kind of drinks you will love-

2. Raw Pressery 18g Protein Milkshakes
What we absolutely LOVED about Raw Pressery’s Protein Milkshakes are the detailed labels and all the information given to increase awareness about certain health-related terms we usually don’t understand. For example, MPI and bioavailability. What’s more important is that these milkshakes are lactose-free and people with lactose intolerance can consume them too.
We reviewed three variants – Choco Mint, Banana+Honey, and Cold Coffee. Out of which, we loved the choco mint variant.
Raw Pressery – Choco Mint
The choco mint protein milkshake by Raw Pressery has a distinct peppermint flavor that freshens up your palette. Our favorite flavor amongst all the variants.
3. GreenFit Green Tea Paper Cup
We love how innovative this product is. The biodegradable cup has a mesh at the bottom and some tulsi green tea leaves underneath them. There are 15 cups in a pack. GreenFit green tea is infused in a biodegradable and wax-free paper cup.

5. Heineken 0.0 Non-Alcoholic Drink
A lot of us in the team questioned the intentions behind this drink. WHO wants a non-alcoholic beer? WHY would you even launch it in the market? The beer lover in us was very skeptical to try this one out. But, if you love the taste of beer and do not want to have alcohol, then Heineken’s 0.0 Non-Alcoholic Drink tastes and looks just like beer.
Heineken 0.0 Alcohol-Free Drink
Heineken 0.0 Non Alcoholic lager Beer comes pretty close to the original taste-wise and the froth on top is very similar too.
6. Sleepy Owl Cold Brew Coffee
Sleepy Owl Coffee is heavenly to smell and tastes very smooth. Definitely a top favorite from the list of top beverages.

The Amul Haldi Doodh is delicious and comes as close as it can get to a glass of home made haldi doodh. We loved the balanced levels of sweetness and the delicate haldi flavor, and thus making it to our list of top picks and one of the best in the list of beverages.

The thought of hot chocolate brings a BIG grin on our faces. Our review lasted for two days and dozen cups of coffee were gulped in a blind tasting to find out the best drinking chocolate amongst three brands.

5. Sunbean Beaten Caffe
Sunbeam Beaten Caffe, an ITC product, is a smooth pre-whipped coffee. You just need to add it to hot milk and enjoy a yummy mug of coffee without any tedious beating.

The pandemic era also saw a viral Dalgona Coffee trend, which was unmissable. We reviewed this trend from our homes to know what the hype is about. Yay or nay?
6. Girnar Masala Chai Premix
The beverage list contains interesting masala chai premix by Girnar. It’s a nice tea that is dominant on cardamom; the creaminess and thickness is almost like homemade tea. The aromatic tea will leave you happy, mostly because you don’t really have to do a lot to make tea. A great premix to accompany us on our outdoor trips. All you need to do is just add hot water to the chai premix and voila! Read our review of Girnar Masala Chai Premix review here.

It is a rather interesting infusion that will leave you asking for more. You can taste the mint, but it doesn’t overshadow the grassy flavor of olive leaves. We are sure, you would love this olive and minty flavour beverage. Read the complete review of the Borges Stress Relief Olive Leaf infusion here.
9. Vahdam Teas Chamomile Mint Citrus Green Tea
If you like adding flavors to your chamomile tea, then you MUST try this. The Vahdam Chamomile Mint Citrus Green Tea is all things minty and fresh, but you cannot miss the subtle hints of chamomile in it. Overall, it is a tasty concoction that you would love to have every day!

10. Rose Flavored Sharbat- Hamdard Roohafza
We reviewed two popularly available rose sharbats from Hamdard Roohafza and Dabur Sharbat-E-Azam. Roohafza has a certain nostalgia attached to it. It has got a distinct rose flavor and perfect sweetness of sugar, which makes you feel refreshed instantly. It’s a summer drink and perfect to add to water, and milk and desserts like faluda, kheer, etc. We are sure you’d love to add it to your grocery list after reading this review.
