Onda is a model of tequila seltzers that leads with its way of life credo of “limitless summer time in a can,” replete with a retro vibe web site that evokes the “surf type of the ’90s.” The drinks comprise blended tequila blanco, seltzer, and actual fruit juice, nothing extra, not even added sweeteners. (Although word: one by no means can work out what to make of the catch-all “pure flavors” as a listed ingredient, which can be the case right here.)
Let’s dive in. Every expression is 5% abv.
Onda Watermelon Tequila Seltzer – This drink hits extra bitter than anticipated, with the grip of tequila current. The watermelon fruit is kind of delicate, with a faint trace of a candied model of the fruit. The zero sugar hits true right here, and the essence of watermelon drives the flavour as a substitute of added sweetness. There’s a slight medicinal edge to the drink, but additionally a pleasant edginess on the palate that makes this a pleasant different for consuming within the solar at simply 5% abv, on days once you don’t need issues sneaking up on you too shortly. B+
Onda Blood Orange Tequila Seltzer – The steadiness on this model is just like the watermelon character, with an edginess on the mouthfeel with the essence of blood orange driving the flavour. The blood orange is softer and extra faint on the palate, ultimately virtually disappearing, leaving you with a pure seltzer end. B
Onda Grapefruit Tequila Seltzer – In contrast to the opposite flavors, there may be an precise “nostril” right here once you pop open the can, with zesty grapefruit scents greeting you enthusiastically. That is my favourite of the trio, providing probably the most pure expression of the fruit, consuming as if you happen to’ve simply sliced a pink grapefruit and stirred it round in your seltzer (with a gutsy splash of tequila) — each candy fruit and bitter rind. B+
The seltzers all have a pleasant grip of tequila pushed bitterness with barely any sweetness, letting the fruit essence shine by way of. The effervescence additionally hits a pleasant word, bringing some physique to the drink however extra muted effervescence than different laborious seltzers.
