Shame-free sipping – Basic Babe launches sparkling cocktails in a can
If there’s one thing that always gives us post-party regret, it’s the icky feeling that comes after consuming way too much sugar via super-sweet pre-mixed drinks. We’ve resolved to do without the sugar-crash shame spiral, so now we’re looking for a less treacherous tipple. The team at Basic Brands (the makers of alcoholic seltzer Basic Babe) has just released a fresh set of canned cocktails – low in calories and 99 percent sugar free. We might have just found our next soiree sidekick …
The alcoholic seltzer movement is more than a craze – it’s a full-on drinking revolution. Folks across Australia are turning towards the beverage as a refreshing alternative to the bevy of overly sugary sips sitting on the bottle-shop shelf. Basic Babe is taking its ‘endless summer in a can’ approach (already nailed across the brand’s range of hard seltzers) and is applying it to a newly released range of classic cocktails in cans.
Cocktails by Basic Babe are spirit-infused formulations that aren’t brewed or fermented, resulting in a drink that boasts 85 calories per can and is 99 percent sugar free. The first two concoctions in the Cocktails by Basic Babe range include a Raspberry and Lime Margarita and the Classic Mojito – flavours that have been rigorously tested to ensure full flavour and a smooth, consistent mouth feel. Both tins are vegan-friendly and gluten free – making it extra easy to ditch the guilt for good. Click here to check out Basic Babe’s local stockists.
