BON V!V Spiked Seltzer — 4.5% ABV
Grab your coolers, whip out your koozies, and prepare for a spiked girl summer like never before. This sunny season, it's about way more than just White Claw and Truly. In preparation for the longest day of the year and the 90-degree days to follow, I went ahead and tried 30 (!!) different brands of spiked seltzer in less than three weeks to see what the heck the deal is with all the new releases. Let's just say there's a lot to unpack . . . into your cooler.
The days of choosing from a handful of spiked seltzers at your local store are long gone; now there are dozens of flavors, brands, and alcohol percentages to choose from — and TBH, it wasn't easy deciding which seltzers made it into the top 15. With help from fellow editors and some humble opinions from my own sweet friends (I couldn't do it all by myself), I was able to rank the seltzers that captivated taste buds most — and I'll be honest, packaging definitely played a role as well. If you're interested in seeing the top 16 seltzers that I and other editors are loving for summer 2021, take a look at the picks ahead.
