The Best Sips at Trader Joe’s (All Under $5!)
Trader Joe's selection of drinks is the only thing that can drag our attention away from the rest of its tasty offerings. What better way to wash down some salty game day snacks than with a refreshing glass of something sweet? The next time you're at TJ's, save some room in your cart. You're going to want to stock up on at least a few of these 14 drinks.
Trader Joe's Golden Oolong Tea ($1): A little smokey, a lot refreshing, iced oolong tea always hits the spot.
Matcha Green Tea ($1): We love matcha tea. Whisking it up ourselves, not so much. Thank goodness that TJ's offers these cans of handily pre-made iced matcha.
Trader Joe's Organic Jalapeño Limeade ($2): When served over crushed ice, this limeade will heat up your taste buds while cooling you down. Add a shot of tequila for the easiest spicy margs ever.
Trader Joe's Black Cold Brew Cans ($2): Stash a few of these cans in the fridge, and you'll have a pick-me-up any time of day, no brewing required.
Trader Joe's Mango Juice ($3): Trader Joe's knows a thing or two about mangoes. When you don't feel like gnawing on the dried mango slices, pick up a can of super-sweet carabo mango juice instead.
Trader Joe's Kombucha ($3): Each bottle is less than $3, and you can get it in two different flavors: green and pomegranate hibiscus.
Trader Joe's Moroccan Mint Iced Tea ($3): Keep a jug of this tea handy to quench your thirst any time of year. The subtle minty flavor is especially refreshing when it's hot out.
Trader Joe's Calamansi Cooler ($3): Calamansi is a tiny, sweet-tart fruit that's a cross between mandarin oranges and kumquats. Add in some bubbly wine for a brunch drink that'll revive even the sleepiest souls.
Trader Joe's Rhubarb & Strawberry and Lemon Elderflower Sodas ($4): Light and summery, these sodas are a far cry from the stuff you get out of the vending machine. Pour over sorbet to make the most elegant floats around.
Trader Joe's Brewed Ginger Beer ($4): You can make impeccable Dark 'n' Stormy cocktails for your friends anytime when you keep a few bottles of this non-alcoholic, citrusy ginger beer (and some rum) on hand.
Sparkling Pressed Apple Juice Beverage ($4): Lower in sugar than soda but more flavorful than seltzer, sparkling apple juice is a surprisingly sophisticated sipper.
Trader Joe's Chocolate Whole Milk With Fair Trade Cocoa ($4): Ultra-rich chocolate milk made with real Fair-Trade cocoa is the grown-up version of your childhood fave.
Trader Joe's Organic Carrot Turmeric Juice Blend ($4): Vegetable juice can cost a fortune. But at TJ's, it's a lot more affordable, even when it's organic and infused with anti-inflammatory turmeric.
Trader Joe's Coconut Cold Brew Concentrate ($5): A hint of coconut flavor means this coffee concentrate becomes a fancy-tasting latte with just a splash of milk.
