Turmeric, coconut and 'hot & spicy,' are the top trending beverage flavors as we head into 2017, according to Louisville-based beverage development company, Flavorman.

Turmeric (the ‘new ginger’)​: Known for its golden color, aromatic flavor and health benefits, turmeric is Flavorman’s top trending beverage flavor for 2017:  “Turmeric is usually found in teas such as cold and flu fighting apple green tea, and cleansing smoothies like carrot, beet and turmeric.”

Coconut​: “This exquisite flavor has a subtle sweetness with undertones of butterscotch and caramel,”​ says Flavorman. “It provides a nutritious source of meat, juice, milk and oil.”

Hot and spicy flavors: “Spices have risen in popularity in beverages over recent years due in part to the ongoing interest and exploration of ethnic cuisines across the United States,”​ says Flavorman. “Major distillers are also creating line extensions to add spice to their existing products such as spicy versions of rum, bourbon and whiskey.”
