Bud Light Lemonade Is a Thing, and We’re 100% Ready for Summer

We can taste the warm weather already.

Depending on where you live, there might still be snow on the ground, but it’s never too early to start daydreaming about warmer temperatures, blue skies, beaches and sunshine.

The folks at Bud Light want you to start thinking like it’s 85 degrees and all your worries are stashed in your beach bag next to the pool. With the introduction of Bud Light Lemonade, we’re ready to start sipping and slipping into that hot-weather state of mind.

A Splash of Lemon

Summer’s well on its way—hey, we’re almost halfway through March!—and this new citrusy flavor of Bud Light ensures your booze is as refreshing as it is tasty. The packaging describes it as a “premium light lager brewed with real lemon peels,” and an alcohol volume of 4.9%. No word on the calorie count yet, but we’re pretty sure we’ll be sipping on it no matter what that number is. The cans are bright yellow because, honestly, what other color can would a lemony beer have?

We definitely think this’d go down smooth with some hot dogs, burgers or just about anything on the grill—and maybe even a summery party, too. Feeling inspired? Check out these grilling recipes you’ve gotta try, then plan the perfect backyard bash.

Where Can I Buy It?

Budweiser hasn’t actually given any official word about this drink yet, but it’s started showing up in liquor stores around the country, so it might be worth calling around to see if any of your local shops have gotten it yet. Bud Light Lemonade is available in 12-ounce and 25-ounce cans. If you’d like a few more options to choose from, you can also pick it up in a variety pack that includes Bud Light Orange and Bud Light Lime, too.
