This summer, there’s no trendier drink around than a slim can of White Claw seltzer. As Salon’s Ashlie Stevens noted, we are in the throes of a full-on “White Claw summer,” with the cans of fizzy, low-calorie seltzer in flavors like grapefruit and black cherry dominating both Instagram feeds and bar menus across the country while inspiring countless memes.

It’s easy to see the appeal of spiked seltzer, especially during these sweltering Texas summers, when beer feels a little too heavy and cocktails just aren’t refreshing enough. The spiked seltzer trend is so serious, in fact, that it’s recently been outselling craft beer, long the alcoholic darling of hip drinkers everywhere. White Claw isn’t the only spiked seltzer player in the market — vodka giant Smirnoff recently introduced its own version, Austin’s Mighty Swell seltzer is cropping up on shelves in Texas and beyond — but it does seem to reign supreme on Dallas cocktail menus.
