I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for mike's hard lemonade. I received a gift card to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
October is here which means it's also a call for the public to band together and participate in Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). This annual month-long charitable campaign has been held every fall since 1995 to build awareness and raise funds for breast cancer research, prevention, and diagnosis -- and most important of all -- to find a cure.
Since 2009, Mike's Hard Lemonade Co. has released this seasonal pink lemonade flavor each fall in support of breast cancer awareness and has contributed more than $1 million to the campaign.
Long story short... What a way for this mom who is on the constant go to extend those not-so-long-ago memories of the lazy days of summer as we move briskly into the hectic back-to-school days of fall!
This adult alcoholic drink made with real whole lemons -- though unlike old-fashioned lemonade is pulpless -- was much more sparkling, light and refreshing than I expected. Not too heavy or filling, with just the right balance between sweet and tart lemon flavor.
My Husband Savors His Own Mike's Moment
Hubby loves joining me for taste tests and giving his own opinions and he was definitely up for this one. When he tried mike's hard pink lemonade straight from the bottle he chimed in, "Though I wish it were pinker in color, it's not overly lemony and really quenches the thirst well with the appropriate carbonation. Overall I think it was really good, definitely best served ice cold."
Limited edition mike's hard pink lemonade is on shelves now through the end of this month at many Circle K stores, liquor stores and at supermarkets selling alcohol nationwide. The malt beverage, made with fresh lemon juice and zest, natural and artificial flavors and a patented neutral malt base, consists of 5% alcohol and is sold in six packs of 11.2 fluid ounce bottles.
No one feels more gratified than I to have the opportunity to share my first-hand experience with mike's hard pink lemonade. Not only because it tastes great but because the company behind it gives a hoot about Breast Cancer.
