Mike’s Hard Black Cherry Lemonade Frozen

Date Tue, May 21 2013


If you’ve been to Wal-mart lately, you might have noticed some displays of individually-wrapped alcohol pouches. There’s several brands, including Mike’s Hard Lemonade. Each is less than $2 and provides you with a serving of light alcohol. Think Capri Sun for adults.

Actually, you’re supposed to pop these pouches in your freezer for a couple hours. The one package I read said five, but another brand in the store said eight, so you’ll want to check depending upon the brand. After freezing, break up the ice into a slushie-like consistency with your hands and enjoy.

Here’s the good news: the Hard Black Cherry flavor is delicious. It’s like dessert and very similar to Kool-aid. The low alcohol content won’t get you drunk, but the ice will cool you off. A single pouch makes about a tall Solo cup full of alcohol, which is probably several servings when you factor in sugar and calories. The official site has yet to add information about these products, but you might want to consider them a treat rather than something you suck down constantly.

There’s bad news, though. The frozen hard lemonade and similar products get quite thick if you actually freeze them. Like, you need a spoon to eat them. You could add some water, I suppose, or simply not freeze them quite so much.  This is something that you can potentially overcome. However, there’s a desired thickness that you’ll have to practice finding with trial and error, which means this product isn’t quite as convenient as it could be.

Still, for less than $2 per pouch, Mike’s Hard Black Cherry Lemonade Frozen is a nice break from the normal, and I expect to enjoy a few more this summer.

    Read the pouch it’s supposed to be frozen and eaten with a spoon. For my money this stuff is awesome. I think I’m addicted to them! If you’re hot and thirsty there is no better way to slake you thirst and cool off than Mikes Hard Black Cherry frozen Lemonade. I wish I could find them by the case. The other flavors are good too, but not as good. Save your money if they store you go to doesn’t have Mikes and they do carry Daileys. Compared to Mikes they taste like somebody drained the cat pan.

    I’ve had a bunch more of these now, and the black cherry is absolutely the best.

    These are good with some Sierra Mist or Ginger Ale…so so good and a nice treat. My first alcoholic beverage.

    I’ve seen them at Walmart and Roundy’s locations, but it’s a bit too early in the season to find them.

    Will walmart start selling them in Wa? If so when? Can I purchase them from Mikes and have them delivered to my walmart in Sequim Wa? When I lived in Az I could purchase them from Safeway by the case. Is that still possible? You guys nailed it when you created those black cherry pouches…. I need cases of them please provide me a distributer in Sequim Wa. Thanx in advance

    Hi Charles,

    You seem to be confused. I am just a reviewer and consumer like you. I am not affiliated with the Mike’s brand. This is not the Mike’s site. I cannot help you find a store or distributor, but I suggest you go to the Mike’s site first. Good luck.
