Big Country Black Raspberry Grapefruit Hard Seltzer Offers Up a Unique Treat

Big Country Black Raspberry Grapefruit Organic Hard Seltzer— Do you remember the days of old-fashioned ice cream parlors? You don’t see this kind of institution around much anymore. But in their heyday, ice cream parlors were a big-time attraction for people of all ages. Parents would take their children for a scoop of ice cream on a sugar cone. Young lovers would sit quietly staring into each other’s eyes as they shared a banana split. Ice cream parlors had specialty flavors you could not find anywhere else. One such ice cream flavor is black raspberry. It is almost sinful the way the luscious cream, sweet cane sugar, and plump juicy black raspberries blended together for a flavor experience unlike any other. Big Country Black Raspberry Grapefruit Hard Seltzer has crafted an adult beverage flavor that harkens back to those fond memories from another time.

Intriguing Bouquet

When you open a can of Big Country Black Raspberry Grapefruit Organic Hard Seltzer you are instantly greeted with what can best be described as an “intriguing scent.” Right from the start, your nose is tempted with a very clear and appetizing fragrance of grapefruit. As the strong grapefruit essence begins to slowly dissipate, hints of berry become recognizable in the air. The bouquet is a lively and inviting one. And with a modest alcohol by volume of 4.5%, this spiked sparkling water promises a pleasant drinking experience if you decide to enjoy more than one. In terms of calories it is on the lighter side with just 90 calories per serving. Also worth noting is that it has only 1 gram of total carbohydrates and 0 grams of total sugars. It is also gluten-free and Certified Fair Trade.

The flavor is very authentic and a true treat. After the raspberry flavors cascade across your palate, you are next greeted with the exciting tones of grapefruit. The grapefruit flavor really gives the taste buds a gift. While the thought of a raspberry and grapefruit combination might have sounded questionable at first, the end product is really, really good. I don’t know where the mixologists got the idea to blend grapefruit and black raspberry, but it panned out very well.
