The Best Functional Drinks For Every Mood And Occasion

If you’re the kind of person who likes to be sipping on something at all times (*raises hand*), your drink rotation probably includes much more than just plain old H2O. And, luckily for your never-quite-quenched taste buds, there are plenty of new and classic ready-to-go beverages that prioritize health with a range of functional ingredients. From energy drinks powered by mushrooms, to seltzers spiked with adaptogenic herbs, to teas with extra immune perks, today’s functional drinks promise to hydrate you while fine-tuning your focus, soothing your nerves, building up your inner defenses, and more. Here’s a taste of some of the sips-with-benefits we’re littering our work desks with lately.

KIN Euphorics

Kin Euphorics

Whether you’re looking to connect, unwind, or be the life of the party sans booze, crack open one of Kin’s “functional beverages for modern rituals.” All made with natural botanicals and elevating ingredients, each of the brand’s offerings suits a different desire. Spritz is your go-to for energized flow, containing boosts of rhodiola rosea, GABA, and 5-HTP, as well as a touch of caffeine to awaken your mind and body. Lightwave is the perfect counter, helping your system settle into quiet ease with the help of soothing reishi, l-theanine, and l-tryptophan. And then there’s Bloom, a joyful, heart-opening combination of damiana, l-theanine, and schisandra that’ll have you feeling warm and fuzzy. 

The Ryl Co.RYL tea drinks

Beloved by country superstar Morgan Wallen (he says the Sweet Tea “tastes like Tennessee”), Ryl’s teas are nostalgic in flavor and deliver on healthiness. The Half & Half Iced Tea tastes like summertime and contains zero grams of sugar (without artificial sweeteners). It offers 20 milligrams of caffeine, 20 percent of your daily vitamin C needs, and Ryl’s own polyphenol technology that jam-packs every can with extra antioxidants. If you’re after maximum immune benefits, the Immune Support Tea (in Pink Lemonade or Juicy Orange) pumps up the vitamin C  to 500 milligrams and adds vitamin D, zinc, and a whole slew of other vitamins and electrolytes to each serving. Every sweet sip builds those inner defenses.

ODYSSEY

Odyssey is on a mission to level up your life with the power of functional mushrooms—and whatever your unique need, it has a ‘shroom-boosted sparkling bev for you. Their Sparkling Mushroom Elixir combines lion’s mane and cordyceps mushroom extracts with the adaptogen Panax ginseng, a little caffeine from green tea extract, and mood- and focus-loving l-theanine to “empower you to harness your personal power to do good” (think meeting work deadlines with less stress and moving through your day with lifted spirits).

And that’s not Odyssey’s only offering. Want all the mushrooms but none of the caffeine? Opt for their Revive drink, which combines those mushroom extracts with electrolytes, zinc, vitamin C, and magnesium to optimize your hydration and support exercise recovery and all-around wellness. 

Of course, if it’s indeed an energy boost you’re really after, Odyssey has you covered there, too. Their 222 drink is all about energy and focus, powering up lion’s mane and cordyceps with 222 milligrams of caffeine, plus Panax ginseng and l-theanine to sharpen your performance both physically and mentally. Free from artificial colors, sweeteners, and flavors, it’s an energy drink with a unique holistic edge.

POPPIPOPPI prebiotic sodas

If you crave the sweetness and fizz of a soda but want to keep your drink routine low in sugar and high in health benefits, Poppi should be on your radar. Containing just about five grams of sugar, these sodas satisfy your sweet tooth with flavors like Doc Pop, Strawberry Lemon, and Orange—all while doing your body good with gut-loving ingredients like apple cider vinegar and prebiotic fiber inulin (prebiotics are food for beneficial gut bacteria). Each can is a bubbly delight that your gut thank you for.

FitAID

FitAid drinks

FitAID is no newbie to the ever-more-exciting world of functional beverages, but that doesn’t mean the brand has gone flat. Instead, its lineup of fitness- and recovery-boosting sips is always evolving and expanding. The Limited Edition Hawaiian Nectar FitAID sports recovery drink, for example, contains a full lineup of BCAAs, turmeric, electrolytes, glucosamine, omega-3s, quercetin, and a whole bunch of vitamins to help your body bounce back after training. Meanwhile, the FitAID Rx Athletic Recovery + Creatine drink is sugar-free and incorporates a gram of creatine to help with muscle recovery, strength, power, and future performance.

Hiyo

hiyo organic seltzers

Calling all seltzer lovers! Hiyo spikes your bubbles with health benefits, not booze. Hiyo’s crafty organic cans are the new social tonic, made with organic adaptogens, nature-based nootropics, and other botanicals that help stress float away, make parties more present, and give “chill” new meaning. Whether you opt for Blackberry Lemon, Peach Mango, or Watermelon Lime, you’ll get a dose of l-theanine from organic green tea extract, organic KSM-66 ashwagandha, organic cordyceps, organic ginger, organic turmeric, and organic lion’s mane.

De Soi

desoi non alcoholic sparkling aperetifs

Bougey vibes are welcome here—and they are a-plenty in De Soi’s Sparkling Non-Alcoholic Aperetifs. Whether you’re feeling fancy come Friday happy hour or want some midday refreshment, these bubbly beverages have an artisanal, sophisticated vibe and contain adaptogens like ashwagandha and other nootropics like l-theanine to support a calm body and mind without any threat of a hangover. Check out Purple Lune (think berries and vanilla), the fruity and floral Tres Rose, Golden Hour (think citrus and herbs), or the earthy, bitter Champignon Dreams.

Waterdropwaterdrop

If your drinking preferences meet at the intersection of human health and sustainability, consider waterdrop. This innovative drink isn’t a drink at all—at first. Waterdrop’s microdrinks are dissolvable cubes impressively packed with fruit and plant extracts to add nutrition and flavor (sugar-free and sweetened with stevia) to your water without unnecessary plastic packaging. Simply drop a cube into fresh water, let the magic happen, and sip down extra nutrients (including vitamin C and B vitamins) as desired. You can’t go wrong with flavors like Lime and Cherry Blossom.
