Let’s be honest, we all had different expectations for Summer 2020. Even though we may not be having the summer we planned, it doesn’t mean that we can’t make the most out of these sunny days.
We are in peak hard seltzer times during these summer months, and I’m sure that there is not a fridge that isn’t stocked with a pack of some spiked bubbly water. My fridge has been stocked up with BON V!V™ spiked seltzers. I recently picked up their variety pack and I have to say that the BON V!V™ Mango Spiked Seltzer is the seltzer 👏 to 👏 drink 👏 this summer.
Like many of you, I’ve been spending more time at home these past few months and I’ve been able to try out some new cocktail recipes using these seltzers. BON V!V seltzers contain zero sugar and are only 90 calories, making it the best choice for summer cocktails.
Today, I am sharing two seltzer cocktail recipes that are perfect for these sunny days, whether you are entertaining friends, laying by the pool, or even while you relax at home. If you’re looking for a more innovative way to sip on your hard seltzer, rather than just drinking it straight from the can, perhaps one of these hard seltzer cocktail recipes will quench your thirst. Plus, you can play mixologist from the comfort of your own kitchen.
Grapefruit seltzer was made to be added to a Paloma. Using BON V!V’s Grapefruit Spiked Seltzer, we make this tequila cocktail a little extra special. Just add it to grapefruit juice, tequila, lime and a little simple syrup for a drink that will make any season feel like summertime.
Pour some kosher salt onto a small plate and give it a gentle shake to even it out. Take the grapefruit and roll it on the counter a couple of times, then slice it in half widthwise.
Slice the other half of the grapefruit into 1/2″ wide slices. Select one of the smaller end pieces of grapefruit and run it around the lip of the glass to dampen the rim and help the salt adhere.
Dip the rim of the glass in the salt, and then fill the glass with ice and set it aside while you mix the other ingredients.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, and add the fresh grapefruit juice, tequila, fresh lime juice, and a dash of simple syrup.
Shake it until it gets very cold. Strain it over the salt-rimmed glass of ice and pour in the BON V!V Grapefruit Seltzer. Garnish it with one of the larger pieces of grapefruit slices and enjoy!
If you like mangos, this is the cocktail for you! Taste the flavors of the tropics with this riff on a classic Cuban mojito, but with the addition of BON V!V’s Mango Spiked Seltzer. It’s super refreshing and the perfect cocktail for sipping with your friends on hot summer days.
Place two lime wedges, mango juice or diced mango (thawed, previously frozen mango chunks will also work), and four mint leaves in a cocktail shaker, then muddle together.
Pour in rum, simple syrup and BON V!V Mango Seltzer, and muddle to combine.
Pour rum mixture, including mango chunks, into glasses over crushed ice.
Top with a splash of the remainder BON V!V Mango Spiked Seltzer and extra mint leaves. Enjoy!
For those who want to cut back on sugar, BON V!V Spiked Seltzer brings zero calories, sugar or carbs to the party. That means you’ll be saving yourself from the sneaky sugary mixers that find their way into many mixed drinks and specialty cocktails.
