10 Best Hard Seltzers in the U.S.
Hard seltzers are having a moment, popularized by brands like White Claw and suitable for a lighter, fizzier drink that’s flavorful right out of the can. But what hard seltzers are actually worth your attention? Here are 10 of our favorites that we think everyone should try at least once, paired with our tripled-walled, vacuum-sealed aluminum and copper koozie to keep it ice cold!
1. Truly Iced Tea
These seltzers are perfect for those who like to explore different flavors! They use real brewed tea ingredients and fruit flavors to create interesting hard seltzers that can go with just about anything. If you’re new to the hard seltzer world, we suggest picking up a variety pack of these iced teas as a starting place.
2. Bud Light Seltzer
It’s no surprise that Budweiser got into the hard seltzer industry, and one of its most popular creations is called Platinum Seltzer. These are naturally sweetened seltzers that pack an extra-hard punch. You can find them in a variety of berry and fruit flavors.
3. High Noon Grapefruit
This hard seltzer, unlike most, is made with a vodka base for the alcohol content, which gives it a sharper, crisper feel. The grapefruit flavor is one of the most popular, but High Noon is in general an excellent choice no matter what your ideal flavor is. As the brand’s name suggests, it’s perfect for a warm afternoon – but you may want a Seltzer Hut koozie to make sure the crisp drink stays cool!
4. Jose Cuervo Playamar
Do you ever wish for a lighter, bubblier version of a margarita? That’s what Playamar is all about, with a unique tequila base that’s surrounded by a variety of flavors like lime or grapefruit. They’re also quite low calorie, with only 90 calories per can and zero sugars.
5. Bon V!V
Sure the name of this beloved drink is a little…odd, but the fashionable hard seltzers (excuse us, they prefer the term “spiked seltzers”) that this brand produces are certainly worth the effort. It’s a mild seltzer that plays down the flavors to make a more sippable drink that’s reminiscent of a La Croix cocktail.
6. Michelob Ultra Organic
If you want the lowest calorie option for your hard seltzer, these drinks from Michelob could be exactly what you’re looking for. They only have 80 calories per can, with no sugars and interesting flavors like cucumber lime and spicy pineapple.
7. Truly Hard Seltzer
Truly Hard Seltzer from Boston Beer Company is all about the flavor, and that focus pays off with a truly delicious drink available in a wide variety of flavors, including Passionfruit and Rose.
8. Maha Organic Hard Seltzer
Are you looking for seltzer with more pronounced health benefits? This inventive option is made with certified organic ingredients and has an added dose of vitamins and minerals. Sure, you’re still drinking, but every little bit helps!
9. Henry’s Hard Sparkling Water
Think of this as a lighter version of Henry’s Hard Soda, with softer fruit flavors like lemon lime and peach mango for a refreshing taste that’s ideal during hot days.
10. Ficks Hard Seltzer
This innovative seltzer is made from fermented orange juice and is an excellent option if you are looking for something different. All the additional flavors are also made from real fruits, so it’s definitely one of the tastiest options, too.
