Just what is Hard Seltzer?
Posted on September 30 2020
Could it be the new drink of the Australian summer?
Alcoholic seltzers were introduced to the Fizztopia team earlier in 2020. Whilst they were new to us Aussies, we learned that it had been THE drink of summer in America last year. So we were keen to learn more.
What is alcoholic seltzer?
The simplest definition is that it's alcoholic sparking water. In reality, it's delicious, light (in calories), light in alcohol....and VERY easy drinking.
Some are wine based, some are cider or beer based and some are spirit based. Many are also gluten-free, preservative-free, vegan-friendly and made with natural flavours.
You can drink them as they come from the can, making them a great option for a picnic or bbq. You can serve it straight over ice with a fruit garnish or use as a mixer with a spirit if you want the flavour but a little more pow!
Want to try it for yourself?
There aren't actually that many brands of seltzer available in Australia...yet!
But we've got several of the hot ones at Fizztopia for you to try, including Delvi, Tidal and Ray from Australia. Plus the soon to be released White Claw from the USA.
