Hard lemonade is a delicious, refreshing beverage consisting of lemonade and alcohol (and whatever else creativity inspires its makers to add). You can expect it to taste a bit more tart than regular lemonade due to the alcohol content, which is generally the same as a bottle of beer. However, lemonade is sour to start with, so the addition of malty flavor and even carbonation won’t drastically affect the taste. Hard lemonade is a flavored malt beverage and falls under the category “alcopop,” or alcoholic pop drinks.
Hard lemonade tastes like regular lemonade but can be more sour. Lemonade is sour to begin with — it’s made with lemons, after all — but the addition of malt flavor and alcohol content (around the same as the average beer) does have a noticeable effect on the taste. However, it’s surprisingly close to regular lemonade. If you’re not a fan of strong alcohol taste, hard lemonade is a good choice for you. It’s sweet, refreshing and carbonated, making it a great choice for a hot summer day.
Hard lemonade hits the same mark as your average beer: around 5% alcohol by volume (ABV). That alcohol doesn’t feature super prominently in its flavor profile, though. Hard lemonade tastes a lot like regular lemonade, perhaps a bit more sour due to the addition of malt flavor and alcohol. But it’s a great choice if you’re looking for a not-too-heavy drink for a hot summer day.
Hard lemonade is one of the friendliest alcoholic drinks out there and tastes good with so many foods it’s hard to name them all. The rule of thumb is this: if it benefited from a squirt of lime, it would go well with hard lemonade: think shrimp, calamari, fish and chips, tossed salads. Then there’s the whole world of cookout foods: hot dogs, juicy burgers, hot wings, grilled chicken and so on. Hard lemonade is wildly refreshing and eager to complement just about anything you’d care to eat.
Hard lemonade doesn’t take itself too seriously, so it might surprise you to learn that the champagne flute is the best glass to enjoy it in, particularly if it’s carbonated. Wait — hear us out. The champagne flute is made to preserve carbonation and funnel fruity flavors to your nose. A long stem keeps your hard lemonade cool, so the carbonation doesn’t leach out into the air. That narrow glass concentrates the citrusy aroma in your nostrils. But listen, if you just can’t stomach the idea of drinking hard lemonade out of a champagne flute in front of your friends, opt for the American Pint Glass. It’ll serve you well.
Hard lemonade sure is delicious, and that deliciousness doesn’t exactly come cheap: it packs a whopping 228 calories and 33 grams of carbs per 12 oz. serving. Compare that with your average 12 oz. serving of beer with similar alcohol by volume (ABV), which has around 150 calories and 13 grams of carbs. Hard lemonade is heavy on the good stuff because it needs to be sweet and flavorful, and because it probably includes malt. But it rewards you for taking on the extra calorie/carb load because it sure is fantastic.
