Funky Buddha Key Lime Cherry Hard Seltzer Serves Up a Slice of Succulent Flavors

Funky Buddha Key Lime Cherry Hard Seltzer— The flavor of cherries is one of the most time-tested ingredients for beverages. Do you remember back to when you were a kid and you wanted to order fancy drinks at restaurants like your parents? So, you ordered a Shirley Temple – which was made with cherry syrup and 7UP. Or perhaps if you were more of a cola person, you opted for a Roy Rogers – which was made with cherry syrup and Coca-Cola. Not only did you get to feel grown up by ordering a mixed drink, but the cherry flavor also made the soda taste incredible. Since then, almost every cola and un-cola maker has come out with a cherry flavored soda of some type. Taking that fruit flavor and reimagining it for the 21 and over crowd is Funky Buddha Key Lime Cherry Hard Seltzer.

Subtle Scent

When you open a can of Funky Buddha Key Lime Cherry Hard Seltzer you are greeted with a very subtle fragrance. At first you will sense a hint of soft lime in the air. If you are not paying attention might miss it. That soft lime scent is followed by unimposing nodes of cherry aroma. Although both the lime and cherry fragrances are subtle, they do accurately represent the cocktail’s advertised fruit flavors. This particular premium hard seltzer has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 4.5%, which is pretty standard. Each can holds just 90 calories, with 1 gram of total carbohydrates and 0 grams of total sugars. It can be noted that this spiked seltzer is also 100% gluten free like their other flavors found in our Funky Buddha Seltzer Reviews.

Funky Buddha Key Lime Cherry Hard Seltzer is Very Fizzy

It is easy to be highly enthusiastic about this Funky Buddha Hard Seltzer. Made in Florida from pure cane sugar and blue agave, this spiked sparkling water is one of the few to get the lime taste to be an authentic match to the real fruit. The key lime flavor is excellent. The cherry flavor is also clear and impressive. You could go so far as to call the cherry flavor bright and cheery. All in all, the lime and cherry flavors balance each other very well. The complementing fruit flavors take on an almost cinnamon flavor when the agave flavor seeps in. This premium hard seltzer is very fizzy, which also makes it fun to drink. The carbonation is truly great.

Great Blend

Combining two fantastic flavors like cherry and lime might seem like a no brainer, but to do it right takes skill.

Reflecting the fruit medley and the alcohol together, the overall taste is somewhat like a spiked cinnamon beverage. And being gluten free and just 90 calories per can, this lime and cherry hard soda will fit many diets. This seltzer has a very high carbonation level, resulting in a lot of fun bubbles. For such a complex flavor, the ingredients are fairly simple – primarily water, cane sugar, blue agave, and natural flavors. At the end of the day this is a great seltzer to drink to unwind.
