Hard seltzer is one of the most recent fads in light alcohol drinking. With few calories, a bit of sparkle, and lots of flavors, hard seltzers are often top choices for summer parties and backyard barbecues.
While the most popular seltzers are from smaller brands, Bud Light has recently entered the mix with a series of Bud Light hard seltzers.
If you’re considering trying a Bud Light seltzer, you might be surprised at the wide variety of flavors available!
Here are the Bud Light Seltzer flavors.
Black Cherry hard seltzer is one of the classic flavors, so Bud Light had to add it to its lineup early on. This is one of the most flavorful hard seltzers you’ll drink, with the sweet flavor of black cherry and the tart zing of red cherry. Both are included in this cool, refreshing poolside seltzer.
As a flavor, mango can be difficult to capture. It is hard to find a seltzer with a good mango option because it often tastes like mango syrup or artificial sweetener. However, Bud Light does a good job bringing the natural sweetness and lightness of the mango to this sweet and light hard seltzer.
If you like lemon-lime soda like Sprite or 7-UP, you’ll love the Bud Light lemon-lime seltzer. It’s carbonated, bubbly, and tastes like an alcoholic Sprite. A lemon-lime seltzer is an excellent choice if you’re looking for the ultimate light summer drink.
Although peach lemonade is a classic summer drink, it’s not Bud Light’s most pungent seltzer flavor. This may be because the peach and lemonade flavors are weakened when they are in seltzer form, but this drink tastes more like peach than lemonade. It’s still a lovely sipper, just not as strong as some others on this list.
Classic Lime Margarita
In addition to classic seltzer flavors, Bud Light added a line of seltzer cocktails to their list. The first is the classic lime margarita, which tastes like a lighter version of a margarita. All you’re missing is the salted rim with this seltzer!
Mango Mai Tai
Another classic cocktail, the mango mai tai, is a perfect option for a seltzer. If you love the sweetness of a mai tai but can’t do the sugar or the calories, this seltzer has all the flavor of a mai tai with some added mango sweetness. However, it’s carbonated and has a lovely lightness to it.
A watermelon mojito is one of the best summer drinks. It’s light, sweet, and fresh enough to cool down even on the hottest of summer days. However, the Bud Light watermelon mojito seltzer is even lighter, with less than one gram of sugar and zero calories. Like all seltzers, it’s one of the healthiest ways to drink alcohol.
Although Bud Light offers a lemon-lime option, the citrus platinum is part of its platinum series - higher alcohol content, more flavor, and better quality all around. Although the platinum flavors are limited, citrus is one of the most popular. With 8% ABV, this is a great way to kick up your seltzer game.
Who says seltzers are only for summer? Apple crisp is a classic fall flavor, and this seltzer captures it perfectly. With a crisp apple flavor and warm cinnamon notes, it has all the flavors of a bonfire in autumn. This seltzer is reminiscent of a good hard cider and should be enjoyed in every season.
Another platinum flavor, wildberry platinum, has an increased ABV and stronger flavors than the regular seltzer line. Wildberry includes blackberry, raspberry, and other berry flavors and is a great way to enjoy higher-alcohol drinks without the added sugar, gluten, or calories of regular beer or mixed drinks.
You probably enjoy a strawberry daiquiri if you have a sugar tooth. It’s basically an alcoholic smoothie and is popular as a breakfast choice in many seaside or tourist towns. However, you can have those same flavors in a seltzer with the Bud Light cocktail line of hard seltzers. It will take you back to the beach!
While the cocktail and platinum lines are the most popular Bud Light seltzers, the company has tried a different route. They have a few soda-flavored seltzers. Alcoholic sodas are a genius way to bring the sunny days of summer back, and this orange soda seltzer is no exception.
In addition to orange soda, the Summer Ice seltzer is meant to taste like an ice cream soda. Although it lacks signature creaminess, Summer Ice has vanilla overtones with sweet cream tastes. The carbonation of the seltzer makes it a natural bridge, and it’s easy to see why this new line is a hit!
Blood Orange Platinum
The last of the platinum flavors is blood orange. It’s tarter, stronger than regular orange flavor, and is increasingly popular in artisan sodas and fruit desserts. Blood Orange Platinum is a delicious seltzer with higher alcohol content and more flavor. It’s a great choice for a summer get-together.
As part of the soda lineup, Bud Light introduced classic childhood flavors to the seltzers. Cherry Limeade might not have been the soda of your youth, but it was a classic drink. Now, you can drink it with a grown-up twist (of 5% alcohol per can). The lime cuts through the cherry to bring the sweet-tart flavor together perfectly.
Another childhood favorite, cherry cola, is the perfect seltzer crossover. With bright cherry flavors and classic sweet cola, the seltzer reminds one of the days at the beach or zoo with a cherry cola in hand. Bring this on your picnic and enjoy a classic summer drink without calories and alcohol.
Bud Light has completed the gamut of childhood flavors by bringing an indisputable classic to their seltzer line. The Blue Raspberry seltzer tastes just like hard candy but is much easier to drink. Don’t worry - this seltzer won’t turn your tongue blue!
Lemon has proven to be a difficult flavor to master in Bud Light seltzers. The citrus platinum lacks lemon flavor, and the peach lemonade leans towards peach. However, when lemonade is on its own as a flavor, it works very well. This is like a lighter version of a classic summer lemonade and is guaranteed to cool you down.
If you can have cherry cola, why not have a classic cola as well? For purists who don’t love putting cherry flavor in their cola, Bud Light created a seltzer reminiscent of your favorite childhood drink. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a Coke or Pepsi person - there’s a new kid on the block, and it’s a classic cola hard seltzer.
Last but certainly not least, Bud Light has provided a seltzer for those who don’t love the sweeter flavors. If you love grapefruit (and I do), the grapefruit seltzer is an excellent choice. It has all the punch of grapefruit and manages to keep a ton of flavor without sacrificing the seltzer itself.
With all of these Bud Light seltzer flavors, you’re sure to find one (or several) that you love.
From classic cola to watermelon mojito, these flavors will jazz up your backyard barbecue and give everyone a Bud they can enjoy.
