These New Canned Cocktails Are Basically Hard Seltzers Made With Tequila
Now that patio season is officially in session, a new sparkling tequila company from co-founder and Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell is launching a light and refreshing tequila-based drink you can enjoy all summer long. These new Onda sparkling tequila cans are the agave-infused alternative to your hard seltzer happy hours — and they come in two ready-to-drink flavors. Here's what to know about the new offerings, which will give you a taste of summer wherever you are — yes, even in your own backyard.
As of July 1, tequila lovers can keep the fun going for longer with two low-alcohol sparkling Grapefruit and Lime Onda beverages, which are both crafted with blanco tequila sourced from a woman-owned distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. With the addition of sparkling water and fruit flavors, the drinks mimic two classic tequila-based sips: a tart and tangy Paloma cocktail and a zesty tequila soda with just a fraction of the booze, ensuing that they're the perfect libation for sipping on all day long.
Both the Grapefruit and Lime offerings come in ready-to-drink 12-ounce slim cans that are 100 calories each, with a 5% ABV, as well as zero sugars and carbs, making them a tasty alternative to any hard seltzer or spiked malt-based options currently on the market.
In addition to a high-quality tequila base (the company says its tequila distillery is one of the most acclaimed in the country), drinkers can also rest easy knowing that the sparkling Grapefruit and Lime flavors only contain 100% real fruit juice and the beverage is made using all natural ingredients.

According to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of June 15, you'll want to cut down unnecessary shopping trips and errands as much as possible and only visit the story when necessary. If you do need to go out, make sure to practice good hygiene practices and wear a face covering over your nose and mouth. If you're feeling sick, stay at home. Luckily, you can order both of these libations online at the Onda website, so that's a great option to go with if possible. Once you receive your delivery packages, make sure to wash or sanitize your hands after opening them.
