Bud Light Grapefruit Seltzer is Like Freshly Sliced Grapefruit

Bud Light Grapefruit Seltzer— Have a sip of Bud Light Grapefruit Seltzer and shut your eyes. You hear the faint chords of a Spanish guitar. You see a beautifully laid table with white flowers in the center. Laughter and the clinking of glasses. Children running around. Mirth and merriment everywhere. The smell of the flowers is bewitching as is the fragrant perfume of grapefruit. You scoop some spicy salsa with your tortilla and then reach for your glass as the heat from the jalapenos gets to you. Another sip and magic happens. The grapefruit and the fizzy bubbles relax you. The gentle alcohol makes you smile. The music takes over and you sway with the beat. Then you realize, you are not having a Paloma; this is a grapefruit-flavored hard seltzer. You take another sip and the magic repeats.

Better Than Grapefruit

Just like the Godfather is one of the few films that live up to (or even exceed) the book, Bud Light Grapefruit Seltzer is one of the few spiked sparkling waters that is better than the fruit. This is not a tall claim. There are staunch, die-hard fans of the grapefruit and even they would agree. The drink tastes like you plucked a grapefruit fresh from an orchard and sliced it. The heady aroma and perfume captivate your attention, luring you to try the beverage. The taste is like fizzy nectar because it isn’t as pedestrian as its Lemon Lime cousins. Instead, it’s exotic yet familiar. The taste lacks the bitterness that grapefruit normally has and the drink has more oomph in it than expected.

A New Way To Grapefruit

To put it plainly for this Bud Light seltzer review, this is a most wonderful to enjoy grapefruit flavor. It has all the brilliant exuberance of the pink fruit without the bitterness. It elevates the taste of the simple citrus to heights that no one thought possible. And with a mere 100 calories in each delightful sip. It’s authentic but in the best way. It has none of the sourness and all of the sweetness. Like sunshine and joy in a can. You never knew grapefruit could be so good. And every time you pop open a can, you can hear that same guitar and it’s time for a little fiesta, again!
