Seasonal Inspiration!

Spiked Seltzers are Hot! These drinks are perfect for enjoying on a hot summer weekend or your Fourth of July celebrations. Not sure which ones to try? Check out the one of these great brands:

White Claw
White Claw ®  Hard Seltzer takes its inspiration from the legend of the White Claw wave – when three perfect crests come together to create a moment of pure refreshment. We set out to make something as purely refreshing as this. The result? White Claw ®  Hard Seltzer. Made Pure ® .

Vive Seltzer
VIVE is a locally made in Covington, KY, is Gluten free Hard Seltzer with All Natural Ingredients, 100 calories, 2g carbs, and 2g of sugar.

Bon and Viv Spiked Seltzer
With 0 grams of sugar, 90 calories, gluten free and a flavorful taste it may seem too good to be true.

Truly Hard Seltzer
Truly was created in order to help people find that perfect beverage. The choices for light and refreshing low-calorie, low sugar options weren’t great. Cocktails were too complicated, wine was too heavy, and who needs that bloated feeling that comes with Light beer?
