The Spiked Seltzer Craze
Most hard seltzer has only been around for five years, but the category has already gained a loyal following. It’s trending on social media and sales are skyrocketing, proving that spiked seltzer is here to stay.
The beauty of hard seltzer is that it tastes delicious, it doesn’t weigh you down, and it delivers a decent punch (5-7% ABV). When you’re feeling something lighter than a cocktail and half the carbs of a beer, the refreshingly simple answer is hard seltzer.
Clean, crisp and tastefully flavored, spiked seltzer is like boozy La Croix. The production process is actually similar to beer, but seltzer is made from fermented cane sugar instead of malted barley. And because the flavors are derived from natural fruit, hard seltzer is low in calories and often gluten-free. Plus, the reduced sugar content makes it less likely to cause a hangover.
Most seltzers come in cans, so take them to the beach, take them camping, take them wherever adventure awaits. If you’re a Vodka Soda with a splash of cranberry type of person, then you just found your new favorite drink.
