Mystic Reef Grapefruit

Mystic Reef Grapefruit is the ideal brunch drink

There’s something about grapefruit in the morning. It has a sweet, fresh taste that has just the right amount of tartness to get you going. Grapefruit is also the perfect mixer for alcoholic drinks. Because of this, Mystic Reef Grapefruit Hard Seltzer is the ideal brunch drink. In fact, you may have to fight off the urge to host brunches all of the time just as an excuse to drink Mystic Reef Grapefruit. Thankfully, these drinks are also a delicious hard seltzer choice for after the workday ends and on weekends. They are filled with flavor and provide a nice kick of alcohol as well. Each Hard Seltzer is made with cane sugar, natural flavors, citric acid, and sodium citrate. The flavors are entirely natural, with no artificial sweeteners. We strongly recommend this one by Mystic Reef, especially if you love the delicious and natural taste of grapefruit. Here is our review.

Spot on With Grapefruit Flavor

Perhaps the best word to describe the Grapefruit Hard Seltzer by Mystic Reef is intense. The flavor explosion is delicious and refreshing. It genuinely tastes like fresh grapefruit. Despite the intense flavor, this is not a sweet seltzer in the least. The combination of flavors is spot on for the perfect taste. Due to the strong flavor, you can also expect a relatively strong and tangy aftertaste, although we found the aftertaste to be enjoyable. Many grapefruit-flavored hard seltzers have a bitter aftertaste that becomes too much after the first can. We did not find this to be the case at all and found the aftertaste far more mellow (which was nice). The alcohol content is also mellow, coming in at 5% ABV, which is average for hard seltzers.

Bubbly With a Delicious Aroma

If you like bubbly hard seltzers, then Mystic Reef Grapefruit Hard Seltzer is an excellent choice. It has the perfect amount of carbonation. This ensures the taste is never flat. The bubbles create one of the best hard seltzer experiences you will find. This hard seltzer also smells delicious. It has a nice, authentic grapefruit scent. In fact, this is the first thing you are likely to notice once you pop the can for the first time. The scent is similar to a ripe and juicy grapefruit, whereas many other grapefruit seltzers have artificial scents that do not provide an authentic experience. The juicy aromas of grapefruit are just a tease of the delicious taste that is to come moments later.

A Homerun for Grapefruit Lovers

Mystic Reef has knocked it out of the park with their Grapefruit Hard Seltzer. This hard seltzer is a great choice for just about any occasion. You can enjoy it with brunch or dinner at home. They are also a fantastic option for any trip outside your home, including pool parties, backyard cookouts, birthday parties, game day get-togethers with family members, trips to the beach, and so much more. Fill the cooler with ice and Mystic Reef Grapefruit Hard Seltzers, grab some friends and family, and enjoy the delicious and refreshing flavor of this hard seltzer. However, you will want to make sure you leave several in your fridge for later; you may even have to hide them from your significant other and roommates as well, as they are so tempting.
