When the sun comes out and the weather gets warm, we all know what that means: it's spiked-seltzer season! While there are tons of brands out there right now, I took it upon myself to do the grueling job of drinking some of the most popular spiked seltzers just so you could know which ones are worth buying. Admittedly, I haven't tried the wildly popular wine-based seltzers from Barefoot or the malt liquor Rosé seltzers from Smirnoff because, ugh, sweet wine gives me headaches, but with a little help from my friends, I was able to put together the holy grail of ranked seltzers.
At around 100 calories, low (if any) carbs and sugars, and around four to five percent ABV, you get the buzz of a beer without the bloat and the taste of a cocktail without the price tag. So really, what's not to love? Not all spiked seltzers are created equal, however, so keep reading for the top 10 spiked-seltzer brands from best to worst.
