Bud Light Seltzer Review: Cherry Cordial
Bud Light Seltzer Cherry Cordial is a Festive Treat
— The cherry cordial was invented in the 1700s in France. Then known by the name “griottes,” the candies were created in the Franche-Comte region of France. Back then, the candies consisted of griotte cherries covered in a chocolate casing. It was only after the recipe immigrated to the U.S. that the process was adapted to include soaking the cherries in alcohol before covering them in chocolate. As such, the term “cordial” now translates to a recipe involving alcoholic liquors. Of course, things change with time. Now the majority of cherry cordial confections marketed today are alcohol free. But, if you hanker for the taste of a traditional alcohol-infused confection in a tempting beverage format, look no further than this Bud Light Seltzer Cherry Cordial.
It’s easy to be enthusiastic about a hard seltzer that offers something new to the market. And such is the case with the Bud Light Seltzer Cherry Cordial. Part of the Bud Light Seltzer Ugly Sweater Pack, when you first open a can of this seasonal spiked seltzer, you will immediately be impressed with the seductive fragrance.
