TikTok has established itself as the first stop on our way when we’re looking for food and drink inspiration. This social media platform introduced us to several drink trends this summer, some more questionable than others, and here are three that have got everyone talking.
If you have a special place in your heart for rosé and all things spicy, this is the No. 1 drink that you should try this summer. Allyssa Marshall was credited for starting this trend on TikTok when she added jalapeños to rosé, inspired by her love for spicy margaritas and her obsession with jalapeños.

Spa water is one of TikTok’s most questionable drink trends in recent memory and it became synonymous with cultural appropriation quickly after going viral. Gracie Norton, who gave it its polarizing nickname, made it using water, cucumber, and sugar. Her followers were quick to notice that the popular Latin American drink agua fresca is made with the same ingredients.

Profee, aka protein coffee, is the latest TikTok drink craze, and it’s all about adding protein powder to your home-brewed coffee or Starbucks order. It became a viral sensation because many people see it as a great way to up your protein intake early in the morning, but experts warn against it because it may lead to excess protein intake.
