Whether you’re enjoying a hot summer day in the sun or curling up next to a fire in the winter, hard seltzers are always a refreshing and thirst-quenching choice. However, this segment of the beverage industry is crowded with options that are sugar-heavy, lack flavor, and ultimately weigh drinkers down. Luckily, Banko Beverage Co., which is headquartered in Allentown, Pennsylvania, monitors industry trends to find hard seltzers worth giving a try. Here’s a closer look at a few of them.
Vizzy Hard Seltzer
A product of Molson Coors, Vizzy Hard Seltzer was unveiled in December 2019 and puts a modern twist on this popular alcoholic beverage category. Its unique flavors include Pineapple Mango, Blueberry Pomegranate, Black Cherry Lime, and Strawberry Kiwi. Additionally, Vizzy Hard Seltzer possesses refreshing qualities beyond its crisp tastes. These include the following:
Vitamins and antioxidants
Vizzy Hard Seltzer is the first of its kind to be made with vitamin C, a well-known antioxidant. One of its main ingredients is acerola cherry, a superfruit with a very high concentration of vitamin C.
Light – not heavy
Gluten-free and just 100 calories per serving, Vizzy Hard Seltzer features a light, airy body and is made with just one added gram of sugar.
Low alcohol by volume (ABV)
At just 5.5% ABV, the hard seltzers in this lineup won’t dehydrate drinkers as quickly as some other options can.
Pabst Blue Ribbon Stronger Seltzer
Though known around the world for its beer, Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) offers more than a refreshing line of brews. PBR Stronger Seltzer is one of the brand’s non-beer options, offering low amounts of sugar, an 8% ABV, and other refreshing characteristics, such as:
Distinct flavor profile
Some hard seltzers promise big taste, but many are too bogged down by artificial flavors and sugar to deliver crisp sensations. Here, PBR Stronger Seltzer stands out. Using natural lime and wild berry ingredients, its flavor is as bold as it is refreshing.
Low sugar content
Enjoy all of seltzer’s lightness without regret. PBR Stronger Seltzer contains just one gram of sugar and is sweetened with Stevia, providing a lower calorie alternative to hard seltzers loaded with sugar.
Smirnoff has been a fixture at liquor stores and bars alike since it emerged as a Russian vodka brand in 1864. Today, it offers far more options than its signature distilled spirits, including Smirnoff Seltzer. It’s refreshing and perfect for any occasion thanks to traits such as:
Smirnoff Seltzer utilizes a brewing process that’s similar to that of making beer, allowing it to achieve its ultra-light body. It contains just one gram of carbohydrates, 90 calories, and zero sugar.
Low alcohol content
Weighing in at 5.5% ABV, Smirnoff Seltzer is a great option to leave guests feeling refreshed on hot and humid days.
With a diverse range of flavors, it’s easy to find a variety of Smirnoff Seltzer to please any preference. No matter where you crack one open, you can choose from the following and more:
- Raspberry Rosé
- Berry Lemonade
- Cranberry Lime
- Piña Colada
- Pink Apple Rosé
- Blood Orange
