Seltzer water is simply regular water with carbon dioxide dissolved in it. During the past few years, seltzer water has gained popularity as an alternative to regular fizzy drinks. But what about alcoholic versions I hear you ask?

Let’s take a look at one sparking craft cocktail brand – Taffer’s – and find out more about the brand and the man behind it.

Taffer’s drinks

Taffer’s claims its drinks feature “fresh, real ingredients” rather than chemicals.

The company’s website states today’s consumers are looking for health benefits from drinks.

And if not total health benefits, at least natural ingredients and high-quality products when it comes to happy hour.

The company behind the drinks was founded by Jon Taffer and Brian Van Flandern (more about them later).

The Taffer’s Mixologist website offers mixers, seltzers and recipes.

The cocktails come in the following flavours: Strawberry Basil, Cucumber Jalapeño, Cherry Lime, California Lime, Grapefruit Moon, Taffer’s Original and Pineapple Coconut.
