Bud Light Seltzer Watermelon Mojito is Putting on the Ritz

Bud Light Seltzer Watermelon Mojito— Chances are that when you were growing up, the presence of mint suggested high class. Take for instance eating out at a restaurant. While Burger King or Taco Bell may be fine for a quick fill up, sit down restaurants that offer after dinner mints always stood out as impressive. The same rule applied to the hotels you and your parents stayed at when on vacation. While the big chains may offer simple rooms at affordable prices, it was the hotels that left a mint on your pillow that were the most memorable. Mint just happens to be a perfect ambassador for the subtleties of elegance. Bringing that experience to the spiked sparkling water market is Bud Light Seltzer Watermelon Mojito.

Refreshing Mint Flavor

While Watermelon gets first billing in the product name, mint is the key to this hard seltzer. When you first open a can of Bud Light Seltzer Watermelon Mojito you are instantly greeted with the unmistakable aroma of fresh mint. Mint can be a very overpowering smell; however, Bud Light does a nice job of not overdoing the fragrance. While the scent of mint is strong and inviting, there really is no indication of watermelon. This is too bad, as that watermelon is an aroma that seems a natural to mix with mint. This hard seltzer has a 5% alcohol by volume (ABV). At 100 calories, this spiked seltzer has just 2 grams of total carbohydrates and 0 grams of total sugars. And for those who track their gluten intake, this hard seltzer is also gluten free.

Bud Light Seltzer Watermelon Mojito Serves Up Strong Flavor

Part of the Bud Light Seltzer “Out of Office” limited edition variety pack, this watermelon and mojito combination is a mint lover’s dream come true. Made with cold-fermented cane sugar, natural flavors, fruit juice, vegetable juice, stevia leaf extract, and malted rice, this tropical hard seltzer is very flavorful. You get a lot of mint flavor when you take your first taste. The mint is present from the beginning of your first sip and all the way through the finish. Where some seltzers struggle to maintain taste throughout, this Bud Light Seltzer offers a pretty consistent flavor. Unfortunately, there is not much watermelon flavor. It is there, it is just somewhat muddled by the strong mint flavor.

Fuel Your Escape

Thanks to the use of both stevia leaf extract and cold-fermented cane sugar, this hard seltzer is very flavorful and very sweet.
