So without further ado and in no particular order, we’re pleased to announce our choices for the Top 10 Specialty & Seasonal Hard Seltzers of 2021.
A wine-based hard seltzer, the total experience of enjoying a Claffey’s Tropical Paradise Seltzer Cocktail is one that you will want to keep pursuing. From the initial fragrance you get when you open a can, to the luscious and spirited eruption of tropical flavors on your tastebuds, this is a seltzer cocktail that will take you on a tropical vacation.
Every hard seltzer drinker has their favorites. Some prefer a fruity mix, while others prefer a more robust flavor mixture. Sparkling Ice Spiked Raspberry Truffle Hard Seltzer is a divine combination of authentic fresh raspberry flavor mated with the taste of rich chocolate truffles. The two flavors mix well for a dessert-like drinking experience.
Loud Lemon Island Jam Spiked Sparkling Lemonade is bountiful in terms of island fruit flavors like guava, pineapple, and blood orange. It is even more so plentiful in terms of the lemon zing characterized in a quality lemonade. Using natural lemon juice concentrate provides a very exciting finish to this hard seltzer.
The scents of chocolate and cherries fill the air with tempting bliss. The chocolate is so thick in the air it feels like you can take a bite. The cherry aroma is just as grand. The combination of the two fragrances is pure heaven. You taste both the chocolate and the cherries, along with a little alcohol kick.
If you are looking to recapture those lusty summer days in the sun with your friends, grabbing a quality lemonade seltzer is a good way to go. The subtle bouquet of Mike’s Lemon Hard Lemonade Seltzer smells gently like lemon, but is never too strong. It has a luscious crisp finish that is sure to delight and the carbonation level is just right for optimum enjoyment.
With a taste as if it came directly from Fruit Stripe gum, Truly Berry Punch Hard Seltzer deserves glowing praise for its unique and delicious flavor. Combing flavors like blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, this amazing taste medley could also be compared to a fresh berry smoothie.
For a highly refreshing escape from the day-to-day doldrums, consider a Bud Light Seltzer Watermelon Mojito. Thanks to the use of both stevia leaf extract and cold-fermented cane sugar, this hard seltzer is very flavorful and very sweet. If you love mint and have a bit of a sweet tooth, you will love this spiked sparkling water.
Not a seasonal, but as the first USDA certified organic hard seltzer, Suzie’s is definitely special and simply too good to leave out of our Top 10! Made from just three natural ingredients, Suzie’s Very Berry Organic Hard Seltzer is definitely one people should put on their “must try” list. It has a beautiful blackberry fragrance that compliments a flavor experience packed full of fresh berry taste.
If you are looking for a mouth-watering medley of fruit flavors in a spiked sparkling water, Fruit Smash Tropical Punch Hard Seltzer is definitely one to be considered. The mixologists at Fruit Smash make expert use of the natural flavors of mango, guava, and passionfruit to deliver a beverage that is sure to delight.
Sangria is a highly sweetened wine-based beverage that mixes in fruit juice, sugar, and carbonated water for a treat that is perfect for the holidays. And Truly Holiday Sangria Style Hard Seltzer captures the yuletide season’s festive sangria spirit. This hard seltzer perfectly recreates a fragrance and flavor that is like real sangria but without the wine.
