10. Cold brewed coffee
Nope, it’s not the same as iced coffee. Coffee connoisseurs have long taken to this drink, which uses a centuries’ old method of coffee brewing. Now, cold brewed coffee (or cold brews) are becoming such a cafe mainstay that some joke of it being the hipster’s go-to drink. How it’s made: ground coffee is steeped overnight for that concentrated essence. The coffee concentrate is then diluted with water and chilled, before being served. The result is a cup of java that’s smoother and less acidic than your average cup of heat-extracted coffee. You can even try making your own cups of cold brews at home, with this do-it-yourself guide.
9. Coconut water

Never has coconut water seemed so ubiquitous here until this year. From supermarket buys to upmarket finds, this refreshing tropical drink has been snapped up by Singaporeans. While detractors might prefer getting it fresh from the coconut itself, you can’t beat the convenience of packaged drinks; you’ll easily find a dozen brands all over the drink aisles. While coconut water might not be the “miracle water” that some tout it to be, its popularity still shows no signs of diminishing.
