Thank you Decoy Premium Seltzer for sponsoring this post. Up your seltzer game, and Sip Premium !
Have you jumped on the seltzer craze yet? I feel like seltzers have taken over the world, at least the alcoholic beverage world. Wine is my usual go-to, but every once in a while I crave something carbonated and refreshing. I think I’ve tried pretty much every seltzer brand out there, and I haven’t fallen in love with any of them…until now! I’m beyond excited that my favorite winery, Decoy, has introduced the first ever premium, wine-based seltzer, Decoy Premium Seltzers. Now I can have the best of both worlds!
Decoy Premium Seltzers are not only wine-based, but also varietal specific, meaning they are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or Rose, and not just some random combo. Created using Decoy’s acclaimed wines, sparkling water, and tantalizing fruit flavor, these refined and refreshing wine seltzers are perfect when you want something light, bubbly, and delicious. Not to mention, they are only 80 calories, have zero added sugar, and are gluten-free!
As you know, Andrew and I love spending time outdoors. And it’s also no secret that we enjoy an adult beverage every now & then (more now than then, lol). Having an adult beverage that is not only delicious, but also easy to pack and take along on our adventures is key. If you follow me on IG, then you know that picnics have been our go-to date night this past year. We recently packed a picnic and headed to Balboa Island to watch the sunset. I mean, what’s better than watching the sunset with a drink in hand and your favorite person by your side? We grabbed a blanket, threw some Decoy Premium Seltzers in a picnic basket, along with fruit & cheese, and headed out. When’s the last time you went on a picnic? It’s the perfect way to reconnect with nature and your partner.
Winemaker Dana Epperson spent over a year crafting these to get the flavor and carbonation spot on. Flavors include Chardonnay with Clementine Orange, Chardonnay with Lemon Ginger, Sauvignon Blanc with Vibrant Lime, and Rose with Black Cherry. I’ve tried them all and each one is refreshing & flavor focused. Plus they’re only lightly carbonated so it doesn’t give me that bloated feeling that other seltzers do. If I was forced to choose, I’d have to say Rosé with Black Cherry would be my favorite. It’s light & refreshing, and has a subtle cherry flavor without being overly sweet. They are ready to drink as is, but you could also add some fresh fruit to spice it up a bit.
I’ve been waiting for a sophisticated seltzer to come along, and I’m so happy that Decoy finally delivered! I can easily say Decoy Premium Seltzers are going to be my new go-to daytime beverage. They have started to pop up in stores throughout the US. Click here to see where you can purchase them near you.
