As you decide which beverages will be accompanying you to your next pool party, summer barbeque, or beach day, consider hard seltzers. These refreshing alcoholic drinks come packed with delicious flavors that scream summertime fun. Here, Banko Beverage Co, a premier beverage distributor in the Greater Lehigh Valley Area, lists some of the top hard seltzers worth a try this summer.
What Are Hard Seltzers?
You may have noticed more and more people are switching to hard seltzers as their summer drink of choice. It seems like just about every beverage company is joining the trend and producing its own seltzer – most likely because the hard seltzer market is on a meteoric rise.
Also known as spiked seltzers or hard sparkling water, hard seltzer is carbonated water combined with alcohol and fruit flavoring. The fruit flavors can either be artificial flavoring or come from real fruit juice, depending on the beverage company. Some of the most common hard seltzer flavors feature citrus, berries, and tropical blends, such as:
- Black cheery
- Passion fruit
- Ruby grapefruit
Much like any alcoholic beverage, the key to hard seltzers is its fermentation process. Seltzers are generally made from fermented sugar cane. Because most of that sugar is converted into alcohol, hard seltzers can make for a healthier option compared to other adult beverages, with their low-calorie, low-sugar, low-carb, and gluten-free combination.
Hard Seltzers Worth Trying
As the selection of hard seltzers to choose from grows seemingly every day, it can be difficult for consumers to know where to begin. For your summer fun, Banko Beverage Co recommends you give these great products a try:
