Explore Deep Citrus Flavor with Funky Buddha Crisp Pink Grapefruit Hard Seltzer

Funky Buddha Crisp Pink Grapefruit Hard Seltzer— The grapefruit first appeared in the 18th century when a botanist crossed a pomelo with an orange. The citrus fruit has a flavor that often can range from sour to bittersweet, far more tart than an orange. It gained the name “grapefruit” because it grows in clusters like grapes. Varieties of grapefruit include yellow, pink, and red. The modern-day beverage market has never shied away from trying to realistically capture the flavor tones of grapefruit. Just think of the tasty grapefruit soft drinks available at your grocery store. Now available to beverage consumers is Funky Buddha Crisp Pink Grapefruit Hard Seltzer. While the title might be a mouthful, the beverage is sensationally good.

Fulfilling Flavor

There is nothing quite like the refreshing taste of grapefruit. Not only is the flavor a delight as a breakfast option, hard grapefruit beverages – when done right – are just as fulfilling later in the day. In the case of Funky Buddha Crisp Pink Grapefruit Hard Seltzer, the makers did get it right. When you first open a can of this Funky concoction, you are greeted with an odor exactly like fresh grapefruit. This is followed by a fresh and crisp taste, more reminiscent of a grapefruit soda than a hard seltzer beverage. With an ABV of 4.5% and only 90 calories per serving, this gluten free drink is perfect for the afternoon or evening. The relatively low calorie count is complemented by 0 grams of total sugar and only 1 gram of total carbs.

Funky Buddha Crisp Pink Grapefruit Hard Seltzer Has No Boozy Aftertaste

This new spiked sparkling water is quite refreshing. The flavor is crisp and is accompanied by the perfect level of carbonation for a hard seltzer. The drink is neither too bubbly nor is it even remotely flat. There is a very clean aftertaste, making this a very pleasurable seltzer to enjoy. Despite being a hard seltzer, there is virtually no heavy, boozy aftertaste at all. Nor is the grapefruit flavor overdone. In fact, this Funky Buddha Premium Hard Seltzer tastes almost like a “lite” orange beverage. It is worth noting that the grapefruit taste becomes stronger when you leave the drink out and it begins to warm. If the emergence of a stronger grapefruit taste is not appealing, you can easily keep the lighter flavor by cooling your drink with ice.

Destined to be a Favorite

Ever since an 18th century botanist came up with the grapefruit, it has been enjoyed on its own and in various recipes. Fast forward to the 21st century and Funky Buddha has come up with a tantalizing hard seltzer variation of the grapefruit flavored beverage. Featuring a strong, but not overpowering flavor, a crisp fresh bouquet, and an enjoyable finish, Funky Buddha Crisp Pink Grapefruit Hard Seltzer stands proudly among high quality alcoholic sparkling waters. While more traditional flavors like orange and lemon-lime are good standbys, you’ll definitely want to try Funky Buddha’s grapefruit delight. It packs a subtle alcoholic punch that doesn’t take away from the overall flavor and is not boozy at all. Just a great beverage with excellent flavor and carbonation. This grapefruit hard seltzer could easily become one of your citrusy favorites.
