What does an underwear company have to do with alcohol? If you’d asked me a month ago, I would have said nothing (or at least nothing more than a joke), but now I’d have a different answer. Shinesty, the self-described “Home of Ball Hammock Pouch Underwear,” made the unusual decision to release its own line of Hard Seltzers called Mummy’s Milk.
While I’m not an immediate fan of Hard Seltzers, I am a curious individual who likes to try new things. Shinesty graciously sent me the collection of three to try out. I have to say these are the best Hard Seltzers I’ve ever had from an underwear company.
The collection has three distinct flavors that have hilarious names and descriptions on the back, including:
- Frankenstein’s Monster (Lime)
- Ghost Spit (Black Cherry)
- Jack O’Liquid (Mango)
Of the three, Jack O’Liquid was my favorite.
Right from the pour, I noticed the aggressive fizz of the Hard Seltzer, along with a watered-down apple juice-like color. There wasn’t much to its aroma though I picked up a hint of the sweet mango. On the tasting, the mango provided just enough sweet and ripe flavor to offset the extreme fizz. It drank well and left me feeling satisfied without being full.
I did find it a bit confusing why they gave a pumpkin-themed drink a mango flavor, but I’m not regretting their choice. It was a good Hard Seltzer.
Hard Seltzers aren’t the norm for a clothing company, but if you look into Shinesty’s sense of humor and marketing, you’ll find what they’ve tried to do here make sense for them. The Jack O’Liquid is worth checking out if you like Hard Seltzers or are simply a fan of unique things.
