I did it. I fell into the hard soda craze.
It started a few weeks ago and it escalated from there.
Curiosity got the best of me.
All the hard sodas. Root beer, orange, ginger ale, grape, cherry cola, cream soda. YUM.
I don’t even know if it’s a beer or not.
As far as I’m concerned it’s carbonated water with booze and sugar.
So far I’ve tried Henry’s Hard Orange, Not Your Father’s Root Beer, Cooney Islands Root Beer, Henry’s Hard Ginger Ale and Best Damn Cherry Cola.
My favorite is by far the Henry’s Hard Orange made with cane sugar. (4.2% ABV) “Malt beverage with natural flavor and certified colors.’ It reminds me Zima but orange flavored. Remember the 90’s and Zima? Good times.
In a close second was the Henry’s Hard Ginger Ale.(4.2% ABV). “Made with cane sugar,” a “malt beverage with natural flavors. This one was super smooth, gingery and just yum. Great for a hot day.
Best Damn Cherry Cola was not my thing.” combines caramel and cola notes with a delicious cherry taste. Aged on whole cherries after brewing, the result is a flavorful take on the timeless taste of Cherry Cola.” I’m a big fan of Cherry Pepsi and this was not even close. It tasted like cough syrup, which I’m not a fan of. Eck. (5.5% ABV) They do have an apple ale that I would like to try.
Not Your Father’s Root Beer tasted like root beer which I’m only a fan of in root beer floats. Yum. That would be good on a hot summer day. (5.9% ABV) “It blends hints of sarsaparilla, wintergreen, anise, and vanilla. A smooth and balanced Ale”
I’m dying to try the Coney Island Hard Orange Cream Ale but every time I go to get it, its sold out. (ABV 5.0%) “Coney Island Hard Orange Cream Ale is an amalgamation of orange, vanilla and spice inspired by the deliciously unexpected concoctions you only find on the boardwalk.”
So have you tried any of the hard sodas? What’s your favorite?
