Al fresco dining and outdoor entertaining needn’t mean boozy nights. Low ABV hard-seltzers are full of sparkling personality, with less of the alcohol.
Hard-seltzers are, essentially, alcoholic sparkling water – and the latest craze to sweep the UK drinks scene. Blended with all-natural fruit juices and a neutral-grain spirit, Long Shot offers a lighter, cleaner way to drink. Each can is just 4% ABV (alcohol by volume), is gluten-free, suitable for vegans and contains less than 70 calories. Choose from Grapefruit, Raspberry & Blackberry, or Strawberry & Rhubarb.
Hard-seltzers don’t get more fun that Naughty Water, whose bright branding screams vintage travel and adventure. Infused with natural flavourings, these cans contain just 5% ABV vodka, less than 72 calories and added vitamin C. The flavours are Sparkling Cranberry, Sparkling Mango & Passionfruit, and Sparkling Blood Orange.
These cans of refreshing, alcoholic sparkling water are ideal for warm Summer days and pairing with al fresco meals. Berczy is 100% natural, contains just 75 calories and comes in three different flavours: Zingy Lemon & Lime; fruity Peach & Raspberry, and tropical Passionfruit & Turmeric, which has a spicy kick!
Agua de Madre
One of our personal favourites here at Good Health is Agua de Madre – a naturally sparkling, low-alcohol water kefir. It’s made with a live Tibicos culture found on the pads of the Mexican Opuntia cactus and fermented with fresh, organic ingredients. It contains 55 billion natural live cultures per 100ml and is incredibly lively! It tastes so good, the only thing you’ll miss is the hangover.
KEEPR’s hard-seltzers are fruit-flavoured vodka-based sparkling waters with a hint of 100% British honey – sourced from more than 275 of the company’s own hives. The brand is committed to preserving British honeybees and its sustainable distillery is powered by four electric heating rods rather than gas or oil. Not only are its 4.2% ABV cans delicious, they’re ideal for garden get-togethers, picnics and BBQs. Choose from Pomegranate & Rose, Pear & Ginger, or Passionfruit & Elderflower.
Clean & Press
Fresh from the Brewdog Distillery Co. in Aberdeen, Clean & Press hard-seltzers combine Scottish sparkling water with single malt craft vodka and punchy natural fruit flavours for a really refreshing tipple. They are just 5% ABV and contain zero carbs and sugar. There are three unique flavours in the range: Cactus & Lime, White Peach & Mango, and Black Cherry – each of which is as invigorating as the next.
