Every summer I intend to have a chic summer cocktail that I can put in a pretty glass with a pretty garnish and sip on. I envisioned myself sitting by a pool enjoying this summer cocktail wearing a super chic bathing suit and floppy brimmed hat. Then reality sets in. When I end up having to go to multiple stores to buy multiple items I get overwhelmed and give up. In addition, carrying around a delicate glass full of alcohol with two little girls running around is never a good idea. Lucky for me and you I discovered Truly Spiked & Sparkling – a delicious alcoholic beverage that is only 100 calories and did I mention comes in a can?!
Seriously, beer in a can is not my thing but I’m loving this bottled beverage. And who says you have to throw the chic drink idea out the window? It’s still possible! For the bottles add a pretty garnish – I have listed all of my favorite pairings below – and for the cans just add in a fun striped straw!
Also, with the amount I work out I hate wasting empty calories on alcohol. Truly Spiked & Sparkling is different. It won’t weigh you down and give you that overly full feeling and has only a 100 calories per drink. Pretty fruity drinks are typically loaded with sugar, but not Truly. Made with all natural cane sugar and fermented into alcohol, Truly Spiked & Sparkling contains only 1 gram of sugar! If you are curious to see how it compares to your favorite drink check out this article in Shape Magazine and I promise you won’t look back. A cosmopolitan alone has 22 grams of sugar! Thanks but no thanks, Ill skip the sugary sips and stick with Truly! Oh and did I mention it tastes good!? So here is everything that you need to know about my go-to summer alcoholic drink of choice.
A refreshing alternative to beer, wine, and sugary cocktails. A great way to enjoy a drink – without feeling weighed down
At just 100 calories, 1g of sugars and 2g of carbs, Truly Spiked & Sparkling has many attributes health-conscious drinkers look for – in addition to being gluten free. Sign me up!
You can find Truly in stores like Target, Kroger and Publix or use their product finder to find the closest store near you.
Why It Is Different Than Most Alcoholic Beverages?
Truly Spiked & Sparkling is not an flavored malt beverage. It’s gluten free, since it starts as cane sugar, not a malt base
It’s not spiked with vodka or rum, either. All natural cane sugar is fermented to create the alcohol in Truly Spiked & Sparkling
