Pinterest recently released the Pinterest 100, a compilation of their predictions for the biggest trends of the upcoming year. Between gardening gear and the top travel destinations, the list is extensive—but we were most intrigued by the top trends in food and drink. From zoodles to beermosas, here are Pinterest's top 10 predictions.
1. Avocado Oil
Sayonara, coconut oil. In 2016, avocado oil—pressed from the pulp of an avocado—will be the star in salad dressings, condiments, and even fruit salad.
2. DYOB: Distill Your Own Booze
Every type of booze has its own fascinating backstory. Vodka is produced from potatoes or rice, while whiskey is created from a variety of grains.
3. DIY Artisan Olive Oils
Infusing olive oil yourself just makes sense. Not only is it cheaper, but it's endlessly customizable—and makes the perfect hostess or housewarming gift.
4. Sweet to Savory
Parmesan and hollandaise replace cinnamon and whipped cream in savory French toast, which is just one example of this brunch-inspired trend.
5. Pour-over Coffee
No more trekking to the fancy coffee shop. Known for extracting the best flavor from the beans, the pour-over process is actually fairly simple at home.
6. Snacking & Bento Boxes
If you love nibbling on a wide variety of foods (and are a sucker for tiny organized compartments), consider buying yourself a Bento box for lunch.
7. Gourmet Heritage Cuisines
Global cuisines are getting a high-end spin: think upscale Kosher and Thai food.
It may take some time (and large equipment), but you'll be able to taste the difference in the beer when you take that first sip.
Bloody Marys and mimosas may look a little different next year, when beer begins to replace hard liquor and champagne.
10. Veggie Swaps
Carbs are so 2015. Zucchini noodles and spaghetti squash will take the place of pasta, while mashed cauliflower could replace mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving.
