Most people will admit that they enjoy an alcoholic drink of some kind, whether it is with a meal, relaxing with friends or simply to wind down after a hard day’s work. However, alcohol aside these drinks are often not the best option for the health conscious – full of sugar or artificial flavorings. That’s why a new trend has taken off that allows people to enjoy that drink but also better understand what is in the mix – the spiked seltzer.
Truly Spiked & Sparkling
Right at the front of this new drinks trend is the Truly Spiked & Sparkling range. These drinks offer a range of refreshing fruit flavors and 5% alcohol by volume, similar to a glass of wine. But the winning part about them is that they have just 100 calories and one gram of sugar. This means the drinks are refreshing like sparkling water, have a gentle alcoholic kick and use real fruit flavors.
There are currently several flavors in the range available in six bottle packs:
- Grapefruit & Pomelo
- Sicilian Blood Orange
- Lemon & Yuzu
- Colima Lime
If you are uncertain which flavor to opt for, there is also a slim can pack of twelve cans, mixing all of the range apart from Pomegranate. This also makes them ideal to transport for a picnic or when camping as they won’t be a breakable risk.
You can also engage in a bit of mixology with these new sparkling seltzers – cocktails to most of us. Their fruit flavors pair well with other types of spirits to make twists on many classic cocktails. The Truly Bitter is a perfect example – it pairs the Grapefruit and Pomelo flavor with Campari and Cointreau as well as juice from a lemon or orange wedge to make a variation of the Negroni cocktail.
Another idea is the Truly Spicyrita – a twist on the Margarita. Use the Colima Lime flavored drink with Jalapeno tequila or infuse ordinary tequila with the chilli if you prefer. Add the juice of three lime wedges and use a pinch of salt then garnish with some thinly sliced chillies.
A great alternative
The Truly Spiked & Sparkling range is an easy way to try the spiked seltzer trend and enjoy a host of new drinks when mixing them with other spirits. This makes them great for a party, relaxing in the garden or taking with you on vacation, all the while monitoring your sugar and calorie intake for a healthy alcoholic option.
