ELVTD Hard Seltzer Review: Piña Colada
ELVTD Piña Colada Tastes Like the Real Thing
Piña Colada is a classic cocktail that is made with rum, coconut, and pineapple. It is one of the most famous beachside cocktails as it features a tropical flavor and experience. The ELVTD Piña Colada recreates this tropical experience without the rum. Although these cocktails come in a can, these Piña Coladas taste like the authentic blended cocktail you would get from a beachside bar. The branding also offers a tropical vibe. Given the strong reputation this drink has among those who drink it, we knew we had to give it a test to see if it lives up to the hype. This review is a collection of our experience with this hard seltzer by ELVTD.
A Tropical Seltzer with Delicious Coconut Flavor
ELVTD (Elevated) Piña Colada Hard Seltzer offers an excellent tropical vibe. Taking a sip of this hard seltzer makes you feel as if you are laying in a hammock, beachside. If you are traveling to the beach or drinking by the pool, then this is an excellent option to add to your cooler. The first thing you notice when you open a can of this hard seltzer is the tropical aroma. It smells like pineapple and coconut, immediately bringing tropical islands to mind. The first sip is fresh and sweet. We immediately detected the coconut flavor. The flavor tastes incredibly natural. At first, we were not sure about the fact that the alcohol in this hard seltzer is fermented from dextrose, but the flavor was enjoyable. The carbonation was relatively low.
A Sugar-Free Beverage with an Authentic Seltzer Vibe
ELVTD makes this Piña Colada Hard Seltzer with filtered carbonated water, alcohol that is fermented from dextrose, and natural flavors. The carbonated water gives it some bubbles and an authentic seltzer vibe. The ELVTD Piña Colada is a sugar and carb-free beverage. In total, this hard seltzer contains only 100 calories per can. The alcohol by volume is 5%, which is average for hard seltzers. With that said, there is a kick of alcohol even after the first can, and it could begin to feel heavy if you consume multiple drinks in one sitting. Also, this is a gluten-free option.
A Great Drink for Vacations and Relaxation at Home
The ELVTD Piña Colada offers an excellent tropical experience in a can. This is a great drink for drinking at home when you simply want to unwind after a long day. It’s also perfect for drinking during a summertime vacation to the beach. Grab a can when you want to escape to a tropical island. The taste is sweet and authentic, although it may not be ideal for adults who prefer a high level of carbonation. The alcohol derived from dextrose may not be ideal for everyone either. Nevertheless, it is a sugar-free and gluten-free option that is relatively low in calories. The branding is also excellent and adds to the beachside vibe this hard seltzer delivers.
