Summer is finally here and it’s cocktail time! The Fourth of July is right around the corner and you’ll be wanting a nice cool drink to sip while you watch the fireworks…am I right?
Today, I’ve got TWO great cocktails that won’t blow your diet, thanks to Smirnoff. The lovely people at Smirnoff were kind of enough to send me samples of their new product, SMIRNOFF SORBET LIGHT™ so I could taste, smell and create. And let me tell you, it’s always a good day when you get vodka in the mail. No just good. Amazing.
There are three new varieties of SMIRNOFF SORBET LIGHT™, Raspberry Pomegranate, Lemon and Mango Passion Fruit. All the flavors are absolutely delicious, but my favorite is the Raspberry Pomegranate. Each flavor clocks in at 78 calories per 1.5 ounce serving. They’re fabulous with a splash of soda water, mixed in your favorite blended drink or shaken in a fancy-schmancy martini.
I put together two new cocktail recipes using the new flavors and I think you’ll love them. The Grown Up Cherry Berry Limeade is like an adult slushy, without all the funky additives AND with booze. Double win. The Vodka Lemon Presse is perfectly refreshing – garnish it with basil if you want to try something different and surprising!
Everyone, have a SAFE and happy holiday. Remember, always drink responsibly AND if you’re under 21, just don’t. Seriously.
Smirnoff provided me with product to sample and enjoy. I was also financially compensated. As always, all opinions expressed are my own.
