High Noon Sun Seltzer

Using 12 oz is perfect for a single serving. Not too boozy, just right to sit back and enjoy the moment. Plus, it's the base of our cocktail; skip it, and you're basically just squeezing lime over ice – talk about a bummer! An alternative could be any flavored hard seltzer; the key is keeping it light and effervescent.

One lime adds just enough zippy tartness to make your taste buds dance the cha-cha-cha. If it’s missing, the cocktail will be flat—emotionally and literally. An alternative to lime could be lemon for a different sort of citrus kick.

It's all about the chill factor. No ice means no cool, relaxed vibes. Too much, and you'll water down the fun - and the flavor. Just right keeps it crisp. If you skip it, you might as well be drinking warm seltzer straight from the can (yikes!).
