Simply Spiked Lemonade Watermelon Lemonade has an Explosive Sweetness

Watermelon is famous for its blast of juice with every bite. The delicious, juicy blast pairs perfectly with so many things, not the least of which is lemonade. Simply Spiked created a hard seltzer that combines the delicious taste of watermelon with lemonade. Oh, and you can’t forget the alcohol content. Your taste buds explode with every sip of the Simply Spiked Lemonade Watermelon Lemonade. It is sweeter than the majority of the hard seltzers we have tried. Right away, you taste the delicious watermelon flavor, and the aroma provides you with a preview of the delicious taste.

Tastes Like Hard Candy with a Lemonade Twist

Simply Spiked Lemonade Watermelon Lemonade Hard Seltzer primarily tastes like natural fruit, which makes sense given much of the flavor is from squeezed and concentrated fruit. The flavor is somewhat similar to hard candies you enjoyed as a child — except there is a lemonade twist as well. Much of this is likely due to the higher amount of sugar (and other sweeteners) that are added. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a flavor-filled hard seltzer, then the Simply Spiked Lemonade Watermelon Lemonade does not disappoint. For many, the powerful sweetness of the Simply Spiked Lemonade Watermelon Lemonade is perfect and delicious. However, it may be too sweet of a flavor for some who prefer something less powerful. There is also good carbonation. Each can is bubbly and not flat at all. This gives it an authentic hard seltzer vibe.

Natural Flavors with Sweeteners

Simply Spiked Lemonade makes their Watermelon Lemonade Hard Seltzer with carbonated water, alcohol, cane sugar, lemon juice from concentrate, citric acid, sodium citrate, natural flavors, and stevia extract. This hard seltzer has an alcohol content of 5% ABV. This is average for hard seltzers, but it can definitely give you a buzz if you consume multiple at once. Whether taking the edge off after a long day of work or having a good time with friends on the weekend, this is a nice option if you want lighter alcohol than a traditional glass of wine. The calorie content is 170 calories, which is on the high side for a hard seltzer. Similarly, the drink has 17 grams of sugar and 18 grams of carbs in total, which is also high. It is, however, gluten-free.

A Uniquely Flavored Lemonade Combination

We recommend this hard seltzer for hot days spent outside with family and friends. From playing backyard games with your family on the weekend to taking a trip to the beach with friends, this alcoholic beverage matches the vibe you desire when outdoors. This may not be the right option if you want a low-sugar choice, but if you want maximum flavor, then it is a nice choice. Despite the strong flavor, we never felt as if it was over-the-top in terms of tartness. You can taste the sweeteners, but you can also tell that Simply Spiked has used natural ingredients, including squeezed and concentrated lemons.
