You bought the beer nerd in your family a craft beer Advent calendar and already picked out the ideal bottle of wine to bring to holiday dinner. But there’s one more libation you could add to your cart that may just put the White Claw lovers at your table in the holiday spirit: Bud Light’s Ugly Sweater seltzer variety pack.
As per usual, the hard seltzers come in slim 12-ounce cans and are made with cane sugar, natural fruit flavors and no artificial sweeteners. Each can contains 100 calories and less than 1 gram of sugar and clocks in at a cool 5% ABV, meaning you can sip them from cocktail hour through dessert without accidentally landing yourself on the naughty list.
The Ugly Sweater lineup slaps the summer right off of boozy bubbly as we know it. Joining the ranks of more common varieties like Lime, Black Cherry and Mango, the holiday flavors are seriously strange (and intriguing). We’re talking cinnamon-spiced Apple Crisp, sweet-tart Cranberry, vanilla-laced Gingersnap and Peppermint Pattie, with bold notes of peppermint and dark chocolate. Umm, we have soooo many questions (and only a taste test will answer them).
If you’re not sure how you feel about chocolate seltzer but are dying to find out, the limited-time variety pack hits shelves November 2.
