    We Tried 24 Low-Cal Spiked Seltzer Brands In One Afternoon

    We did the hard work so you don't have to.

    Spiked seltzers are all the rage this summer...and we aren't complaining about it!

    So we decided to undertake the very difficult challenge of testing out all the low-cal spiked seltzers we could find — 24 in total.

    A flat lay of different canned drinks that are part of this taste test.

    It was a really hard job, but we were up for the challenge.
