Seltzy Kicked Back Cucumber LycheeSeltzy Kicked Back Cucumber Lychee Introduces a New and Unique Flavor

Lychee is one of the most underrated fruits. In fact, despite its sweet taste and unique appearance, many have never heard of lychee and are not familiar with its flavor. Lychees are native to China and grow in the tropical regions of Southeast Asia, India, and the Pacific Islands. Their peels are red and rough, but the fruit inside is an almost transparent shade of white. Lychees taste sweet. They are comparable to a peeled grape. There is also a subtle hint of citrus there as well. The Seltzy Kicked Back Cucumber Lychee introduces hard seltzer enthusiasts to the wonderful taste of the lychee fruit. This drink by Seltzy does a great job of implementing the delicious flavor of lychee and also complementing it with the crisp and refreshing taste of cucumber. We were intrigued by the unique blend of flavors in this hard seltzer and decided to give it a try. Below is a summary of our testers’ experience. 

Light and Crisp with a Fresh Flavor

Cucumber and lychee create a flavor combo that is incredibly different than anything you have likely ever tried. The flavor of Seltzy Kicked Back Cucumber Lychee Hard Seltzer is strange at first, given its unique combination, but it gets better as you continue drinking and adjusting to the flavor experience. The lychee is the most prominent. The cucumber is there as well, albeit far less noticeable. Nevertheless, the cucumber adds a nice element of freshness. There is also excellent carbonation due to the citric acid and carbon dioxide additions. It creates an authentic seltzer experience and provides a lot of life. We recommend pairing this hard seltzer with gourmet food at a brunch or lunch party. This is also a great choice if you’re planning a relaxing day by the pool with your friends. 

A Light Hard Seltzer

Seltzy makes its Kicked Back Cucumber Lychee hard seltzer with purified water, alcohol from dextrose, natural flavors, citric acid, and carbon dioxide. There are 90 calories, 0 grams of carbs, and only 0.5 grams of sugar per can. Additionally, the Seltzer Kicked Back Cucumber Lychee only contains an alcohol content of 4% ABV. All of this combines for one of the lightest hard seltzers you will find. This makes it an excellent choice for canned hard seltzer drinkers who are monitoring their sugar and calorie consumption and prefer a lighter quantity of alcohol. 

A Light Option That Works Well for Social Occasions 

The Seltzy Kicked Back Cucumber Lychee is an incredibly versatile beverage that you can enjoy at home or on the go (i.e., beach trips with the family, spa days with your best friend). Seltzy suggests that you enjoy this hard seltzer straight from the can or mix it into your cocktails. Seltzy recommends putting on your mixologist hat and adding hot sauce, cucumber, simple syrup, and a neutral spirit to this hard seltzer. We always recommend drinking responsibly and with moderation (according to your limits), but with only 4% alcohol, we think that most could enjoy a second can or even a third. Therefore, if you are seeking a light option that you can subtly sip throughout a long social event or dinner party, then this may be a nice alternative to heavier hard seltzers and cocktails.
