About Flavored Spirits-Based Hard Seltzer
A Flavored Spirits-Based Hard Seltzer is a conveniently packaged carbonated alcoholic beverage with fruit-forward flavors made with grain neutral sprits. These bubbly waters are typically flavored with artificial sweeteners like stevia, aspartame, and sucralose to make them sweet, although some producers use real fruit juice. The ABV is generally low (around 5%), and the calorie content is as well. They are usually gluten free, and are marketed as a healthier alternative to other alcoholic drinks.
