Hard seltzers are the low-calorie and low carb alcoholic drinks that are causing sensation this summer. 

To be honest, this is not exactly a new concept. These beverages started to appear on stores in 2013, and cans of spiked bubbly water was already quite popular in summer 2016. Since then, however, the drink trend continued to spread and now these “healthy alcoholic drinks” are reaching their peak moment. 

This is due, in part, to the growing demand for healthier beverages and, in part, because hard seltzers appeal to a new kind of consumer, who’s always on the move and wants to enjoy his favorite beverage in a form as portable as a beer (a phenomenon that also led to the emergence of canned wine). Last but not least, they’re light, hydrating and refreshing, which make them perfect for summer.

More and more established companies are releasing their own versions of the drink and brand new ones who focus solely on hard seltzers are popping up as well.

If you want to taste the trend, here are 5 options to try.
