Alcoholic Seltzer’s ABOUT TIME!

Years ago when I celebrated my 30th Birthday in Vegas I was introduced to the tasty world of alcoholic seltzers. It was just out of dumb luck I stumbled across one of these drinks when I was in a Walgreens with the husband trying to find a premixed drink to walk along the strip with since I needed a little break from one of the frozen cocktails everyone struts along with. I had also got to enjoy them last year on my little adventure to the states swell and had started to keep track of brands and flavours I had enjoyed. Which mad wit such even more when I found out I couldn’t get any of them in Australia!!! So I made it a mission to find some seltzers that I could make my new favourite drink. Now since Im getting older and have now lost my baby weight and want to keep it off Im trying out the seltzers and recording the alcohol content, how many standard drinks and how many calories are in each can.

I only got 4 different brands to try out for now so wish me luck!

TASTE TEST NUMBER ONE

ACTUAL VODKA SELTZER AND LIME

ALC/VOLUME : 4.2%

CALORIES: 69

STANDARD DRINKS: 1

Whoa this is a dangerous drink! It tasted like sparkling water with a hint of lime. It was pretty refreshing to drink I swear I could drink so many of these and not get sick of the taste. But because I couldn’t taste even a hint of alcohol I think if I downed these as if they were simply sparkling water I could end up passed out in the shower.

TASTE TEST NUMBER TWO

FELLR LIME AND SODA ALCOHOLIC SELTZER

ALC/VOLUME : 4%

CALORIES: 83

STANDARD DRINKS: 1

This one I think tasted a lot like a low calorie/ low sugar lime flavoured cider. It was delightful to drink, the lime wasn’t too overpowering that it tasted like someone went a bit crazy with the lime flavour. The only fault was this did feel like it gave me a fair few burps afterwards it felt very carbonated.

TASTE TEST NUMBER THREE

BROOKVALE UNION LIME AND ORANGE BITTERS BOOZY SELTZER

ALC/VOLUME : 4%

CALORIES: 90

STANDARD DRINKS: 1

This when opening, smelt like a toilet air freshener. Thats the only way I can describe the scent. The taste wasn’t really any better, I really didn’t enjoy this it tasted off. It I brushed my teeth and drank a citrus drink afterwards

TASTE TEST NUMBER FOUR

TWO BIRDS WATERMELON CHIRPY BREWED ALCOHOLIC SODA

ALC/VOLUME : 4%

CALORIES: 100

STANDARD DRINKS: 1

I was looking forward to this one, I like watermelon flavoured drinks they always taste so good. When I drank this the first sip kind of reminded me of a sour watermelon lolly, but not too sour that its disgusting. But when I went in for more sips I found it was very dry and after the can I really needed a lot of water.

This what a great start to finding an alcoholic seltzer to enjoy I’ve found a few more to try out. I hopefully will find a favourite by summer. Yes that would be perfect on a nice summer afternoon with my feet in the paddle pool stay tuned for round two.

IM OUT!!!
