Bored with the Ginaissance? Meet alcoholic sparkling water
Gin & Tonic, gin & slimline, gin & juice… so predictable, so calorific, so last year.
We’ve all been sucked into the ginfluence, and frankly it was great. However, we soon realised the summer bod wasn’t as slimline as we wanted, and having another drink wasn't the perfect tonic. And, there’s just no way we’re sacrificing our social lives for extra gym classes or a quiet night in to avoid the tempation of a few bevvies.
What was once a summer drink, replacing the ounces of sugar from Britian’s beloved fruity jug of Pimms, gin became that kid that fit in everywhere, a real all rounder. We’d order a G&T in a sunny pub garden, we’d slurp it at craft gin festivals, we’d even gasped for one by an open log fire at Christmas time.
Hard seltzer comes to the UK
We’re all getting more conscious about our health and fitness, whether it’s for the dream holiday, pushing ourselves towards a new fitness goal or just feeling as fresh as humanly possible. Gin and slimline just ain’t cutting it anymore. We welcome the disruptive new kid, bound to shake things up. Hailed from over the pond and already basking in its popularity, is hard seltzer.
Not feeling ballsy enough to order a tap water at the pub? Don’t want to be stone cold sober as your mates get tipsy? Nor do you fancy a stinking hangover? Ahh ha. Hard seltzer – boozy water, spiked seltzer or alcoholic sparkling water – and it’s simple low-calorie recipe is just the solution.
