White Claw Tropical Pomelo SmashWhite Claw Surf Tropical Pomelo Smash is a New Favorite Hard Seltzer

Nowadays, it seems like every time we go to the grocery store, there’s a new citrusy treasure to take home. The pomelo grapefruit is a citrus fruit that is quickly gaining popularity. If you haven’t tried a pomelo before, now is the time to try it. It looks similar to a grapefruit. Pomelos are an incredibly underrated member of the citrus family. Perhaps a good way to experience the true beauty of this fruit is by tasting it in a cocktail. A pomelo cocktail is a refreshing upgrade to the classic grapefruit cocktails we know. Another option is seltzers. Pomelo-inspired seltzers are rare, but White Claw just released a Tropical Pomelo Smash Hard Seltzer. We decided to test it, and here’s what we found.
