American Chu-hi?

Is this vodka soda with artificial (zero calorie) flavours?

The zero alcohol cocktails you can buy in Japan are way better than the alcohol free beers and are all zero calories. Just add vodka if you want a very low calorie flavoured drink. Chuhai is very high in calories.

Recently tried the Bon Vit Grapefruit spiked seltzer. Not bad.

But prefer Asahi Slat Grapefruit Sour.

They don't sound very appealing.  Low flavor and low alcohol.  What's the point?

Alcohol? No thanks. Want to be “Healthy”?, don’t drink.

For the dedicated self-embalmer, nothing beats Everclear. And, with Everclear, ANYTHING can be a 'drink'. And it's PURE and it's CHEAP. Get yourself one of those seltzer gizmoes, a couple of empty bottles with 'White Claw' labels, and liquid-phase haute couture at ANY % EtOH you want or can tolerate and you'll be ready to emulate all of those fashionable East Coast alcoholics with custom made flavoured liver bombs, duii delights, broken family fajitas, gin disses, anything a spongy brain can imagine. Yeah! Alcohol! Nothing raises the IQ or improves the disposition like a toxic industrial solvent as in in-toxic-ation. Spoiled grain, doubly concentrated spoiled grain, what could be better for relaxation than concentrated yeast poop? ... pssst..pst pssst... OH? THAT much better? And doesn't cause chronic diseases? And helps with ALL of those other things? REALLY? Why is it illegal? Ah, Corporate lies and ignorance, I see. Well, I'll drink to that since I have no CHOICE.
