Forget sunglasses and white shorts — the hottest accessory to bring to a summer barbecue is a pack of spiked seltzers.
Crisp, cool, and convenient, spiked seltzers are easily the best drink to pair with warmer days. While we look forward to a more social summer with our vaccinated pals, let V take care of the drink list. Here are the best bubbly bevs for summer soirées.
White Claw Surge
The newest drop from tried and true brand White Claw might give Four Loko a run for its money. With 8% ABV, this boozy option is available in two new flavors: blood orange and cranberry.
The adult version of your childhood favorite treat. Beach Juice, spotted at Trader Joes, is made with cold-pressed lemons, vodka, and sparkling water.
Real fruit? Check. Real vodka? Check. High Noons pair perfectly with beach days, in delicious flavors such as pineapple, grapefruit, watermelon, lime, black cherry, and peach.
At 5% ABV and only 100 calories, it's a miracle that these lemonade seltzers taste like juice. Don't be afraid to sneak a little vodka in — we won't tell anyone.
Press Hard Seltzer
These bubbly drinks from Press are like hand-crafted cocktails in a can. Choose from creative flavor combos such as pineapple basil, lingonberry elderflower, blackberry hibiscus, pomegranate ginger, lime lemongrass, grapefruit cardamom, blood orange chili, pear chamomile, and apple cinnamon.
AriZona Sunrise Hard Seltzer
From the brand that brought you 99 cent cans of sweet tea, meet Sunrise. Available in four tasty flavors, AriZona's seltzer is made with real fruit.
Vizzy Hard Seltzer
Formulated with antioxidants and vitamin C, you can basically call these a green juice. Vizzy is available in two variety pack combos with a myriad of fun flavors: watermelon strawberry, raspberry tangerine, papaya passionfruit, and blackberry lemon or blueberry pomegranate, strawberry kiwi, black cherry lime, and pineapple mango.
CACTI Agave Spiked Seltzer
If margaritas are your drink of choice, CACTI seltzer, made with 100% blue agave, might become your favorite seltzer option. The brainchild of Travis Scott, CACTI comes in pineapple, lime, and strawberry.
