This week I am off with the in-laws on a family vacation to the Jersey shore. This is the equivalent to dry dock for me but I have gotten the pre-approval to take an assorted case of Mike’s Hard Lemonade for consumption by the masses. While I have had various Mike’s products, the new multi-pack contains a Black Cherry Lemonade. After a lengthy trip to the beach (over an hour without a nap is a tough day for me), I thought I had earned a bottle. I was expecting something along the lines of a malted Wishniak. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find the flavor to be refreshing blend of the sweetness of fruit and the tartness of the lemonade. Overall, I would say that while the original lemonade is still my favorite, the Black Cherry is an acceptable summertime alternative. I would give this beverage a B.
