Corona Refresca Pineapple LimeCorona Refresca Pineapple Lime Offers a Refreshing Tropical Taste for Every Party

Pineapple has come a long way from its discovery in tropical America. Today, it has become a characteristic ingredient in popular cuisines and drinks worldwide. Their popularity is largely due to their refreshing flavor and sweet, tangy taste, making them wonderful for summertime recipes. Today, more brands are incorporating them with other fruits in cocktails and alcoholic seltzer products. One such combination that is fast gaining popularity is the pineapple + lime combination. You’ve probably seen this combination in the seltzer section of your favorite grocery store. One beverage that stands out to us is the Corona Refresca Pineapple Lime Seltzer. The hard seltzer might be a new favorite because of how it combines natural flavors to produce a refreshing drink. We decided to test it, and here’s what we found.

Tropical Vacation in a Can 

The Corona Refresca Pineapple Lime hits instant notes from the first sip. It’s like a drinkable flight to the tropics, placing your tastebuds in first-class while you enjoy the ride. As you open the can, you’re greeted by a refreshing pineapple scent that fills the air and urges you to take your first sip. The taste doesn’t disappoint. It is almost like you’re taking a bite of pineapple – sweet, tangy, and juicy. The color is a bold yellow, which is a delight to watch in a glass. The pineapple flavor dominates. We don’t get an instant taste of the lime, but it is still there. It tastes as if the mixologist created the cocktail with pineapple and added a slice of lime to the rim of the glass. Beyond its consistently sweet taste, everything about this drink reminds you of a tropical experience with the people you love.

An Instant Tasteful Delight

Perhaps the biggest win for this seltzer is the use of natural flavors and certified colors. This places it as a safe-to-drink option at home and for all parties. It is also sugar-free. The sweet taste of the drink will urge you on even after a few cans. When it does, remember that the drink has a total carbohydrate content of 21.6 grams of carbs and 170 calories which is not exactly great for weight watchers. It’s also not gluten free for those sensitive to gluten. So, if you’re watching your carbs or calories, we recommend keeping an eye on the quantity you take. But if you’re okay with these ingredients, feel free to go for a few more cans. After all, the 4.5% alcohol content likely won’t leave you with a bad hangover. The natural sweetness of pineapple in this drink makes it a fantastic choice to reset taste buds after big meals.

Instantly Refreshing

As far as hard seltzer goes, Corona Refresca Pineapple Lime Seltzer comes packed with all the right ingredients to delight everybody. The mild alcohol content means that it can be served at any party. So whether you’re having a backyard BBQ party for the family or a summer beach party with friends, this is an excellent seltzer to introduce. Quick note: best served chilled, so get some ice in the cooler and allow it to chill before serving.
