Claffey’s Modern Mango Seltzer Cocktail Has a Crisp and Clean Tropical Taste

— There is nothing quiet like the flavor of fresh mango. The mango is a stone fruit that grows on tropical trees. You have never tasted a fruit as sinfully delicious, with its sweetness and just the smallest hint of tanginess. Feeling the beautiful summer sun beating down on you as you bite into the tender soft yellow inner flesh of the mango will transport you to tropical destinations. Native to South Asia, the mango is the national fruit of India and Pakistan, and the national tree of Bangladesh. As of 2019, Indonesia, China, and Mexico are the biggest providers of mangos behind India. The refreshing, sweet flavor of mango is on full display in this wine-based hard seltzer, Claffey’s Modern Mango Seltzer Cocktail.

Subtle Bouquet

The fragrance that you are greeted with when you open a Claffey’s Modern Mango Seltzer Cocktail is faint but recognizable. This makes sense as that mangos are not a highly fragrant fruit. But the modest aroma is clean and inviting. You definitely will feel your mouth salivating in anticipation once you get a whiff. Each can is packed with 100 calories – not enough to make a significant impact on your waistline, even if you have a few. With a 5% alcohol by volume (ABV), this quiet beverage offers a bit of a punch. You’ll really notice it after throwing a few back. Each can has 2 grams of total carbohydrates and 2 grams of total sugars. And as a wine-based hard seltzer, this beverage is 100% gluten-free.

Claffey’s Modern Mango Seltzer Cocktail Has a Clean & Crisp Flavor

One great quality of this Claffey’s Seltzer Cocktail is that is not overly carbonated. The wrong amount of carbonation can ruin, or at least severely diminish, the enjoyability of a hard seltzer. In this case, the mixologists at Claffey’s decided to go with a low amount of carbonation. This lets the flavor stand on its own. The taste is clean and light. It is a very refreshing beverage. The mango taste is right on target for a bullseye. The flavor is both fruity and pleasant, without being too strong. Sometimes mango beverages have a fake taste to them, but this one has a very good and authentic mango flavor. Another fantastic trait of this sparkling spiked beverage is that it is not very filling. You will be able to enjoy more than one without feeling full or overwhelmed by alcohol.

Very Likeable

From the initial fragrance that greets you with a Claffey’s Modern Mango Seltzer Cocktail, to the drinking experience, you’ll know right away if this is a drink for you. It has an authentic mango taste that is very refreshing. You definitely taste the fruit flavor, but there is also no sour aftertaste. Nor is this beverage overly filling. The fact is, you can have a few without feeling full at all. And with 5% ABV, having a few will keep you feeling happy. Just make sure you have a designated driver if you plan to go anywhere. All in all, with its crisp and clear taste, if you are a fan of authentic mango flavor, you will enjoy this wine-based seltzer from Claffey’s Cocktails.
