Funky Buddha Smooth Exotic Passionfruit Dragonfruit is Unique

Passion fruit and dragon fruit are exotic fruits that are prevalent in the tropics. They have an intriguing outward appearance that may give you pause, but the tastes of these tropical fruits are incredible. Funky Buddha Smooth Exotic Passionfruit Dragonfruit Hard Seltzer takes these exotic fruit flavors and combines them into a hard seltzer. Everything from the branding to the aroma to the unique flavor screams exotic. There’s no question about it, these hard seltzers by Funky Buddha are unique. These may be an outlier from the other more popular hard seltzer flavors, such as orange, pineapple, and watermelon. However, this just makes this hard seltzer all the more intriguing. We decided to test this hard seltzer, and here is what we found.

A Rare Find for Fruit Flavors

U.S. grocery stores often don’t have passion fruits and dragon fruits in stock, so you may not be exactly sure what to expect when you take your first sip of Funky Buddha Smooth Exotic Passionfruit Dragonfruit. That is okay. Your first sip is filled with flavor and a nice kick of alcohol. It smells like mango and other exotic fruits. There is a subtle sweetness, but it is not as sweet as other fruits, such as pineapple. It tastes refreshing, light, and crisp. It has a nice citrus taste with an interesting tart flavor mixed in as well. This hard seltzer by Funky Buddha uses natural flavors, so you can expect an authentic flavor.

Only 4.5% Alcohol (So Enjoy Two!)

This hard seltzer contains only 90 calories per can, which is lower than your average hard seltzer. In addition to that, these offerings have only 1 gram of carbs and zero grams of sugar. As for their alcohol content, they come in at 4.5% alcohol by volume (ABV), and you can hardly taste the alcohol. The exotic fruit medley is certainly the dominant flavor. The alcohol is light but can be felt after drinking a couple. Of course, you should always be careful when consuming. The alcohol is derived from cane sugar and blue agave, so the Funky Buddha Smooth Exotic Passionfruit Dragonfruit incorporates some rum and tequila vibes into each canned beverage as well.

Escape From Reality with Each Sip

On the Funky Buddha website, the brand states that their tropical hard seltzers are inspired by the “hot heat of the tropics and the radical sunshine of the Florida coast.” This makes sense, as each sip makes you feel (and wish you were) beachside while on vacation. It truly provides an escape from reality that is great for after work or while decompressing on the weekend. You may choose it when drinking casually with friends as well. The passion fruit and dragon fruit combination provides an especially unique and exotic experience. If you have a bold and unique personality, then this bold and unique hard seltzer is perfect for you.
