Hard Southern Sweet Tea offers a taste of tea with a hint of lemon. At an ABV of 5 percent, the drink will be available in 12-ounce slim can 12 packs and 24-ounce cans at select retailers.
“After tremendous support and response from across the country for Sonic Hard Seltzer, it became clear that the Sonic fan is enjoying the experience of their favorite Sonic beverages in adult form,” said Sean Mossman, president of COOP Beverage Works. “Adult Hard Tea and Adult Hard Slush are natural brand extensions, and we are all excited for our fans to be able to try these amazing flavors.”
In addition, Sonic is launching three ready-to-drink frozen pouch flavors inspired by Sonic drinks. With a 6 percent ABV, Hard Slush will offer slush flavors like Cherry Limeade, Blue Raspberry and Watermelon.
