Sunnier days are in the forecast and, to go with the warmer weather, we’re seeing the seasonal release of a delicious-sounding flavor from Mike’s Hard Lemonade — and the limited-edition beverage is just as cold, sweet and perfect for spring and summer as you might expect.
Mike’s Pineapple Mandarin Hard Lemonade has been recently spotted in stores. You can buy it now at places like Target, The Fresh Market and Walmart, where a six-pack of 11.2-ounce bottles costs $9.48.
The product description on Walmart’s site says that the alcoholic drink “features a classic mix of pineapple with mandarin notes and of course, juicy lemonade. The taste is refreshing, juicy, and full of citrus flavor.”
The product isn’t completely new. Instagrammers like @karmacoffeeyogaluck posted about it when it became available at around the same time last year — and raved about it!

The flavor appears to be back on shelves now. Though, apparently, it’s still not available in cans because of its status as a limited-edition flavor (sorry, @karmacoffeeyogaluck!).
Stores like Bashners Liquors in Hartford, Connecticut, are among those posting about the reappearance of the product:
The drink has a 5% ABV and is rated 3.67 out of 5 on Untappd.

Fruity, citrus-infused spiked drinks are all the rage right now. If you’re looking for the perfect alcoholic drink with which to relax in your backyard, you’ve got options. For example, earlier this year, Truly released a line of low-cal hard seltzer lemonade with a 5% ABV and just 1 gram of sugar that comes in four flavors, including Mango Lemonade and Strawberry Lemonade.
And last year, Corona introduced Refresca, a line of fruity malt beverages (like Mike’s) with a 4.5% ABV that comes in flavors like Coconut Lime, Guava Lime and Passionfruit Lime. They’re available right now as well; you can get a 12-pack from Walmart for $15.48.
Get a few of these and you’ll definitely be ready for summer!
