5 Best Ways to Drink Hard Seltzers

Enjoying your favourite hard seltzer can be much more interesting than just open, drink, and recycle. Here are 5 easy ways to level up your hard seltzer drinking experience.  

Add fresh fruit and herbs 

If you want to bring more vibrant and fresh notes to your boozy sparkling water, consider adding some fresh fruits to the glass. Lime, lemon, and orange will work just perfectly. As well as seasonal fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries. Try delicate and refreshing Whisp Raspberry & Elderflower Hard Seltzer over ice, garnished with a slice of lemon and fresh raspberries. 

Nothing tastes as refreshing as fresh mint. Pair it with, for example, Gerry’s Cucumber and Lemon Gin Seltzer for a nice and aromatic tipple. 

Pour fruit juice or mixer 

Freshly squeezed juices and cocktail mixers can elevate your seltzer drinking experience and bring new flavours to the table. You can choose literally any juice you like — orange, lemon, lime, apple juices, you name it. 

Mixers are also a perfect choice when you want to add some unique flavour to the hard seltzer. Try to complement your Served Raspberry hard seltzer with Two Keys Pink Grapefruit Mixer. The combination of crisp and delicate raspberry notes and bittersweet mixer poured over ice will create a well-balanced afternoon drink. 

Mix it with wine

You might’ve never thought about it, but bubbly hard seltzer and a pour of white wine or vermouth make a delicious Spritzer! And, since last summer days are calling for wine spritzers, you will want to make some. In a wine glass, combine 60ml of white wine / vermouth, and top up with a hard seltzer of your choice. Garnish this liquid sunshine with an orange wheel and Voilà, a boozy brunch time drink is ready. Enjoy!

You can experiment with flavours in your glass by adding a few dashes of cocktail bitters. 

Combine two flavours

Feel that this seltzer in your glass is missing something? Combine two tastes and bring new flavours and aromas to your glass! It is also a fun game, cause you kind of creating your own recipe, how cool is that? 

With a great choice of tastes, there is endless room for experiments. So, check out our choice of independent British hard seltzers and choose your favourite flavours.
