This Is the Drink Everyone Will Be Sipping All Summer
Nope, it's not rosé.
Brace yourselves: Aldi is launching a spiked seltzer, and we have a feeing it's going to be a game-changer. Starting May 2, the super-popular grocery chain will launch the Vista Bay Hard Seltzer collection with four fresh flavors: Ruby Grapefruit, Lime, Black Cherry and Coconut Mango. According to Aldi, the boozy beverages will be sold in six-packs for $5.89.
Unfortunately, not all of us live within shopping distance of an Aldi. That’s why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to round up hard seltzers that can be purchased online and shipped directly to you (depending on your local liquor laws, of course). Perfect for backyard BBQ’s and sunny beach days, these refreshing low-cal beverages are enough to keep you satisfied without weighing you down. So, pack your flip-flops, gather up your sunscreen and get ready to crack open a can of spiked sparkling water.
