Spruce Up Your Homebrewed Hard Seltzer

We’re celebrating the launch of our recipe kits by sharing some great ways to enjoy your homebrewed hard seltzer! Check out our recipes, tips and tricks below, grab a kit from your local retailer and impress your friends and family with the perfect summer drink that can truly be enjoyed all year-round.

Serve the perfect, sparkling beverage 

It goes without saying that the best way to serve hard seltzer is ice cold, so store it in the refrigerator, pour it over ice and garnish with a slice of lemon or lime for an extra refreshing beverage! 

To create some fantastic aromatics, add some fresh herbs like mint, rosemary, elderflower or basil, or spice things up by popping a slice or two of fresh ginger into your glass. You can also enhance these herby and fruity flavours by sticking sugar or salt around the rim of the glass. 

Creativity is the aim of the game here, so experiment with flavours and pick your favourite.

Make your homebrewed hard seltzer even fruitier

Our recipe kits make brewing a batch of hard seltzer at home as easy as one, two, three. Simply ferment, flavour, bottle and in four weeks or less, you can kick back with a delicious, low-calorie drink that can be enjoyed all year round!

Whether you’ve chosen Pineapple Sunset, Raspberry Breeze or Lemon & Lime Splash, you can spruce things up by adding 500g of fresh or frozen fruit at step 2, the flavouring stage. 

Transform classic beverages

If you enjoy a glass of wine spritzer, or a refreshing gin and tonic, next time try replacing your usual soda or tonic water with hard seltzer. It could become your new favourite drink.
