VIDE Tequila Soda Grapefruit

VIDE Tequila Soda Grapefruit is Smooth and Natural

Tequila is a complex form of alcohol. It is distilled from the blue agave plant, and it is almost exclusively produced in Mexico (in and surrounding the city of Tequila). Moreover, there are three different types of tequila — Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo. Tequila blanco (also called tequila silver) is considered by many as the liquor in its purest form. It is usually bottled right after distillation for a more authentic taste. VIDE Tequila Soda Grapefruit uses tequila blanco, along with natural ingredients and carbonation. Due to the excellent source of alcohol and the use of natural flavors, we decided to put this tequila soda to the test. Below are our notes about this beverage, based on the experience of Seltzer Nation taste testers.

A Solid Tequila Soda

One of the first things we noticed about VIDE Tequila Soda Grapefruit is its pleasant aromatic presence. It smells like fresh citrus, letting you know that the grapefruit flavoring is natural. As soon as we took a sip, we marveled at this tequila soda’s unique flavor. On the one hand, the tequila is very smooth. The grapefruit is also excellent and enjoyable (you can tell it is derived naturally). However, the beverage leaves a slightly metallic aftertaste. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable flavor and a nice experience overall. Along with the excellent aroma and natural taste, there is also a high level of carbonation. The carbonation gives life to the canned cocktail and provides a fizzy sensation that we enjoy.

A Tequila Canned Cocktail with No Added Sugar

VIDE makes its Tequila Soda Canned Cocktail with tequila, carbonated water, and natural grapefruit flavor. The good news is there are no carbs in this canned cocktail and no sugar. Additionally, all cans are gluten-free. There are 99 calories total in VIDE Tequila Soda Grapefruit. The ABV is 5%. Therefore, the tequila is not too potent. It is lighter than the average tequila cocktail. With that said, the alcohol is certainly there. These canned cocktails are easy to drink, so a kick of alcohol can sneak up on you. We also appreciated the nice branding on the cans as well.

Great for Tequila and Canned Cocktail Lovers

Tequila is generally a strong-tasting alcohol. For some cocktail drinkers, the flavor is often far too much. However, many drinkers who find the flavor too potent still enjoy tequila blanco as the flavor is lighter and smoother than other varieties. As this tequila soda by VIDE uses tequila blanco, the tequila flavor is smooth, delicious, and not overpowering. Therefore, we recommend this canned cocktail for both tequila fans and those who are on the fence about the liquor. If you want to try a tequila canned cocktail, then this is an excellent option for you. We recommend serving these beverages as cold as possible by storing them in your fridge or a cooler filled with ice.
