White Claw’s Mild Mannered Ruby Grapefruit Will Demand Your Attention

White Claw Ruby Grapefruit Hard Seltzer— Sip a White Claw Ruby Grapefruit Hard Seltzer and you’ll feel like you’ve taken a bite of a juicy pink grapefruit. There is nothing mean you can really say about this drink because it is exactly what it advertises. It’s a grapefruit hard seltzer with all the perks and pitfalls the natural fruit offers. But while it does taste like the fruit, White Claw has elevated its taste without making it feel artificial. It works. And it works well alone or with a dash of gin. It makes a great mixer for other cocktails but is fantastic chilled and on its own as well.

Ruby Elegance

Grapefruit has the reputation of being a stuffy citrus fruit. But there is nothing stodgy about this spiked seltzer flavor. Light, peppy, and energetic, this drink perks you up and keeps you on your toes. It’s a bouquet of citrus flavors without the fragrance that makes you feel like you’re in the cleaning products aisle of the supermarket. The taste is exuberant but classy and does not feel pedestrian whatsoever. If White Claw Ruby Grapefruit Hard Seltzer was a person, you could bet they would be wearing a string of pearls. It feels super fancy and it’s an honor to be drinking one. As if not just anyone can drink one of these and must earn the right and privilege.

White Claw Ruby Grapefruit Hard Seltzer Feels Fancy

The entire experience is a premium one. The beautifully designed can with its bright colors and sleek body. The delicate scent. The modest 5% alcohol content. It all makes you feel like a member of an exclusive club. The product may be available in many stores, but it feels luxurious and decadent nonetheless. The bitterness of the grapefruit prevents you from drinking the whole can too quickly. And you’ll be glad you took your time with this ruby-flavored beauty. But if you start drinking it more rapidly, halfway through you’ll quickly realize that the alcohol is very much present. It is a hard seltzer, after all. It delivers just enough to give you that gentle nudge to relax and dull your weary thoughts away. It’s bitter exactly like the grapefruit, but that taste contrasts sharply with the accompanying sweetness. It creates a plethora of flavors for you in just one drink. It captures all the elements of taste and seamlessly becomes a steady favorite.
