As anyone who still has their Pokemon Go! app will tell you, trends come and go but classics last forever. And while it’s always fun to try new things that bring new perspectives, shake up routines and expand horizons, there’s something about the classics that give our souls the comfort we crave. After all, there’s a reason that “The Classics” are, well, classic. It’s the way the elements blend together and perfectly compliment one another to create delightfully visceral experiences. It’s the dependability we can rely on when ordering up our go-to favorites. And most importantly, it’s the milestones and moments the classics aid along the way.

So, the next time you’re in need of a frosty beverage to wet your whistle, look no further than these four classics that have withstood the test of time.
