When spiked seltzer first started showing up on shelves a few years back, we thought it was just a crazy gimmick. But, as the growing sales and rapidly expanding options have proven, gimmick it is not. It’s as clear as the spiked seltzers themselves that this category of refreshing, low-cal, subtly flavored spritzers is here to stay.
It makes sense, when you think about it. For years, the only folks who could buy ready-to-drink boozy beverages were beer drinkers. Eventually, cider- and- wine-drinkers got their cans. Even cocktail drinkers got a break. And now, those who swear by Vodka Sodas with a splash of cran finally have a portable version of their favorite booze to take with them to the beach or on a camping trip or just into the backyard.
But they aren’t the only people who can enjoy a spiked seltzer. Heck, even a diehard beer drinker needs to switch things up every now and then, and these crushable sippers are just the things to give them something to slurp down when a hoppy IPA or malty stout is just too much. And, if you ask us, a spiked seltzer is a downright delightful patio drink. Plus, if the 5-6% ABV isn’t enough, they make an excellent cocktail ingredient. Yes, you can spike spiked seltzer.
