Admit it, there are days when nothing sounds good, and you definitely crave something a little sweet and something with a little kick. Beer? Nope. Wine? Nah. Vodka tonic? Not today. So, what’s a person to do? We’ve got the answer in an aisle near you: hard sodas. They are definitely not the sodas of your childhood – these are better, but they’re only for adults. 

In fact, we have (more than) ten reasons why reaching for a hard soda is the best idea you’ll have all day. And, how much alcohol are we talking about? Most average about the same as a beer.

  1. Root Beer is now way more interesting. Just as tasty and now with alcohol. 
  1. Hard Ginger Ale tastes better than it sounds.
  1. Orange Soda with a kick. Being an adult was never so much fun.
