CANTEEN Vodka Soda Review: Lime
CANTEEN Lime Vodka Soda is a Crisp and Clean Citrus Experience
— When you think about it, the lime is really one of the greatest fruits for combining with spirits. Think back to turning 21 and going out to celebrate. Your more experienced friends invite you to try an imported Mexican beer such as Corona or Sol, showing you first how to properly season it with a wedge of fresh lime. The result is spectacular. In fact, the taste of lime and alcohol never seems to fail. Think of some of the other lime infused adult drinks like margaritas, daiquiris, of vodka gimlets. In every case the lime is one of the keys to the flavor experience. That great mix of lime and spirits is front and center with CANTEEN Lime Vodka Soda.
Fresh Lime Scent
When you open a can of CANTEEN Lime Vodka Soda you find your nose embraced with the scent nodes of real fresh lime. The scent is very authentic and inviting. Your mouth will literally start to water right away. Truly, the scent is one of the most appealing things about this particular seltzer. In terms of alcohol content, this sparkling water and vodka beverage is at 5% alcohol by volume (ABV), which is pretty average for hard seltzer style drinks. It has just 99 calories per can, is gluten-free, and has 0 grams of total sugars and 0 grams of total carbohydrates. There is little to deter you from enjoying one of these fine vodka seltzers.
CANTEEN Lime Vodka Soda is Bursting with Bubbles
The high level of carbonation in this CANTEEN Vodka Soda is rather fun. There are a lot of bubbles to enjoy, but not enough to tarnish the drinking experience. However, the authentic lime scent does not necessarily translate to an authentic lime flavor. The flavor is a bit artificial, and you can taste the vodka. It is a bit of a boozy flavor. If you like lime flavor you will probably be satisfied with this hard seltzer cocktail even though the flavor is not quite perfect. The overall taste is similar to a vodka and tonic with a twist of lime. One good thing is that there is no bitter aftertaste. In fact, this vodka seltzer has a very clean and appealing finish. It’s a smooth drink that delivers a little kick at the end.
Worth a Try
The flavor of CANTEEN Lime Vodka Soda can best be summed up as that of a strong bar drink. From the point you open the can you are greeted with a pleasing aroma. While the accompanying taste is not entirely that of authentic lime, it is still an enjoyable seltzer cocktail. You can taste vodka, so if you do not like the taste of alcohol this might not be the hard seltzer for you. As noted in our other CANTEEN vodka soda reviews, the taste of the alcohol is usually present in these types of drinks. But if you like the taste of a vodka and tonic with a twist of lime, then this spiked vodka seltzer is right up your alley. It has an enjoyable flavor and very clean finish, while at the same time it is low in calories and has 0 total sugars or carbohydrates. Give this hard sparkling vodka cocktail a try. You might be surprised by how much you like it.
