If 2020 proved one thing to the world of beverages, it is that hard seltzers are here to stay. And if these spiked and sparkling drinks are not going anywhere, then drink makers have to continuously add innovative and inspiring flavors to their lineup to show just how much flavor they can add to hard seltzer.
As drinkers demand more from their hard seltzer, their calls will be answered, and more flavors released. 2021 is no exception. Here are a few of the new and innovative hard seltzers coming to a beverage cooler near you in 2021.
Mike’s Hard Lemonade Seltzer: One of the most anticipated hard seltzers of 2021 is coming in February/ March from the lemonade masters at Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
