Hard seltzer have become the hottest drink of the summer, I mean White Claws all day! This summer, Sonic is joining the hard seltzer category and we can’t wait.

The Oklahoma City-based fast food chain is launching hard seltzers in collaboration with local brewery COOP Ale Works. Each hard seltzer is inspired by the chain’s signature slushes so mark your calendars for May 1

Customers can expect flavors like Lemon Berry, Classic Lemonade, Cherry Limeade and Original Limeade that come in a 12-can “Citrus Variety Pack,” according to Oklahoma-based 405 Magazine reporter Greg Horton, who broke the news on Twitter.

As reported by Mashed, the seltzer will contain 5 percent alcohol by volume, two grams of sugar, and 160 calories per can.

According to KOKH News, Sonic has confirmed the collaboration, but sadly the new hard seltzers will not be sold at Sonic Drive-In locations. Sonic has not yet announced where these hard seltzers will be distributed but we are keeping a close eye on their social channels.

While we don’t have more information on the hard seltzers, we know that COOP Ale Works has its own line of hard seltzers – Will & Wiley – which launched last year in flavors like Mango Guava, Grapefruit, Pineapple, and Cherry Lime.

Food & Wine suggested that Sonic Hard Seltzers will likely be available in the same markets that Will & Wiley are distributed: Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas

May 1st can’t come soon enough! We’re ready for you Sonic!

If you’re not the hard seltzer fan, don’t sweat it! Sonic is still your go-to drive-in destination and recently unveiled new OREO Big Scoop Cookie Dough Blast and Sundae. These delightful treats scoop hearty portions of edible cookie dough, infused with chocolate chips and OREO cookie pieces. No more scooping through the ice cream to find those large pieces of cookie dough!
