Mike's Hard Lemonade Review

I'm not a huge drinker.  I like the occasional cocktail or glass of Prosecco here and there, but I'm not one to have a nightly glass of anything.  My drinks of choice are usually girly ones like vodka cranberries, or cosmos.  Mike's Hard Lemonade has always been on my list of go-to alcoholic beverages.  The variety of delicious flavors keeps me coming back time and time again.

Mike's Hard Lemonade is produced from products based on its original Mike's Hard Lemonade, a combination of lemonade and unflavored malt liquor base.  The drinks contain 5% alcohol so they are not extremely strong.  I'm not a fan of very strong drinks so this is perfect for me.  The flavors range from original and berry to iced tea, lime, crisp apple, pink lemonade etc.  Recently, the company has come out with drink pouches that you freeze and pour into a glass for a refreshing summer beverage.  How does black cherry, classic margarita or hard strawberry lemonade sound among many other flavors? Whatever flavor you choose, I can assure you it will be delicious.

I was contacted by Mike's recently to review some of their product.  I thought I would receive a couple new flavors to try.  I was told a messenger would be delivering the shipment.  I didn't think anything of it until I told my fiance to pick up the delivery because I thought it might be heavy.  Since we live in a condo building, we have one of those wheeled carts to help move large items.  He knocked on the door to have me let him in.  I didn't expect to see the entire cart filled with boxes of Mike's.  I was shocked and laughed.  I really thought it was a joke!

This is certainly a gift from the Mike's gods.  I live in a small apartment and don't have a ton of room.  I am still figuring out where to put all of these! :) 

I received a few boxes of frozen pouches in the following flavors: classic margarita, black cherry, and frozen lemonade.  I received 2 boxes of Shandy which is beer and lemonade, and then a box of hard pink lemonade which are in glass bottles.  

So far I've really enjoyed the frozen lemonade pouches.  I freeze them and at night I sit out in the courtyard and enjoy it.  They freeze easily and pour into a margarita glass with ease.  The ratio of lemonade to alcohol is perfect, and it's really refreshing on a warm summer's night.  It's not overly strong either.  The black cherry pouch is also extremely tasty too.  It's like going to a restaurant and having a frozen margarita, but in the comfort of your own home. 

My fiance loves the Shandy.  He's never had a beer mixed with lemonade before but he says it's an interesting combination that has led him to finish the whole box. :)  He likes that you can taste the lemonade and beer equally. 

We need to have a party so the rest of the drinks can be used up! Who wants to come over? I look forward to trying the rest of the flavors too.

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Mike's Hard Lemonade for providing me with complimentary product in exchange for this review.  All thoughts are my own.
