How Does It Compare To BEER, Wine Or G&Ts?
For a start, the alcohol by volume (ABV) is much lower than wine or spirits – on average, a hard seltzer comes in at 5%, compared to 13% for red wine and 37.5% for gin and tonic. And when it comes to calories, Topo Chico’s hard seltzers contain fewer than 100, whereas an average pint of beer come in at 239 calories, a medium glass of red wine has 133 calories and a double G&T has around 150 calories.
What Are The Benefits?
Topo Chico’s three variations are low on sugar, free of preservatives and only use natural flavourings. Their low ABV – 4.7% – is also a draw, making them a great option if you don’t fancy having a big, boozy night. Finally, their low-cal (96 calories), no-carb credentials make these a good choice for those wanting something with a lighter taste. Hard seltzers are also naturally vegan and gluten free.
