What Is A Hard Seltzer

Don’t let the name fool you, this Hard Seltzer is quite easy and simple to make.

You only need a few minutes and a few ingredients for the best results. Any “hard” drink is just an alcoholic version of whatever the drink is.

So, this is a seltzer drink that has been spiked with alcohol. As simple as that!

The flavors that you can use in a hard seltzer are pretty much endless. Light and fruity flavors are common and very popular during the summer time.

You can also use heathy, crisp veggie flavors when you’re wanting to enjoy a mixed drink malt beverage type drink, but trying to stay with a healthier option.

The ideas you can use are as long as you want to make them. You can also vary the degree of carbonation, choosing a seltzer brand or soda water brand that you prefer with either more or less carbonation.

Variations and Tips

Want to make a Truly strawberry lemonade copycat recipe– use strawberry lemonade in your hard lemonade seltzer recipe to make a strawberry lemonade seltzer.

Swap fruits– feel free to trade out or add in other fruits that you prefer. Maybe watermelon, pineapple, blueberries, mango chunks, raspberries or blackberries to name a few.

Add juices– Try things like natural strawberry juice concentrate, fresh-squeezed fruit, or even a cocktail juice mixture.

Try other seltzers– pick your favorite clear beverage seltzer with other flavors.

  • Consume your mixed cocktail as soon as you make it for optimal flavoring. Otherwise, the ice will start melting and could change the taste, and the carbonation level of your drink will also decrease.
  • Instead of adding white granulated sugar, try adding sugar in the raw or cane sugar if you’re looking to sweeten up your drink without too many extra calories.

How Many Calories In A Strawberry Hard Seltzer?

This all depends on the calories of the ingredients you choose to use.

Most commercially made hard seltzers are similar in calorie content to a light beer. They’re usually around 100 calories a drink.

With this recipe, your seltzer is typically 0-10 calories, ice is 0, strawberries are very low as well , so it all depends on the calories in the vodka that you choose!

If this is something you’re concerned about, they have apps, like MyFitnessPal that is great at letting you calculate your calories while using specific brands to help you choose the most accurate options.

Why Are Spike Seltzer’s Trending?

They’re a relatively light and semi-healthy mixed cocktail drink option to choose.

You can still “enjoy an alcoholic beverage” without allll the calories, especially for those who love fruity drinks.

They don’t contain as much sugar as normal cocktails, which is good for lower calories and in many people, it helps reduce the severity of a hangover because of a lower sugar content.

Vodka and sodas have become quite popular, especially when the weather is warm- as it’s a lighter drink to enjoy, and the commercial Hard Seltzer companies took note of that and created their own versions, like Truly, Bon & Viv, and the extremely popular White Claw!
