All Four Flavors of White Claw Vodka + Soda, Ranked
White Claw Vodka + Soda Shakes Up 2023’s Beverage Scene
2023 unveiled an unexpected surprise from White Claw: the introduction of a genuine-spirits line, White Claw Vodka + Soda. Since 2019, White Claw has dominated the hard seltzer kingdom, employing ingenious strategies like leveraging YouTubers and trendy hashtags. In an era where hard seltzer brands competed in the race for novel flavors, White Claw held its ground, offering consistency over fleeting trends. However, clearly the desire to push boundaries beckoned, and White Claw veered into uncharted territory – genuine spirits.
The White Claw Vodka + Soda line introduces an alluring array of flavors: Peach, Wild Cherry, Pineapple, and Watermelon. These drinks contain real fruit juice and vodka. Distilled five times from 100% American Grain Alcohol, the White Claw Triple Wave Filtered Vodka embodies an extraordinary smoothness achieved through a unique filtration process. These gluten-free beverages boast only 100 calories and a mere 2 grams of carbohydrates per can. The alcohol content stands at 4.5% ABV, a slight departure from the standard 5% ABV for their iconic hard seltzers.

#4 Peach Vodka + Soda
Upon popping a can of Peach White Claw Vodka + Soda, a delicate peachy aroma greeted us. While not overpowering, it hinted at the promise of a refreshing sip. However, the taste journey took an unexpected turn – Peach didn’t assert its dominance. Instead, a resemblance to pear emerged, which led to mixed reactions among our testers. As peach enthusiasts, we couldn’t help but wish for a more authentic expression of the fruit.
#3 Watermelon Vodka + Soda
With a scent reminiscent of Jolly Ranchers, Watermelon hinted at a sugary sweetness. The taste, however, balanced the fragrance with a lighter profile, yielding a refreshing experience. The beach vibes were strong, and we could easily imagine indulging in it while dipping our toes in the frothy surf. The vodka’s presence was subtle, making this a potential crowd-pleaser for laid-back occasions.
#2 Black Cherry Vodka + Soda
The aroma of Black Cherry was pungent without being medicinal. A subtle hint of black cherry emerged in the taste, delivering a balanced sweetness that resonated with adult palates. The vodka’s integration merged harmoniously with the flavor profile. The result was a delightful harmony between the black cherry flavor and the smooth vodka.
#1 Pineapple Vodka + Soda
True to its name, Pineapple White Claw Vodka + Soda captured the essence of sweet pineapple, immediately transporting us to sandy shores and sunny escapades. Refreshing and crushable, this flavor proved a true delight. While we reveled in its balance, some of us yearned for a more intense pineapple burst, yet the subtlety retained its charm.
