Smirnoff launches new fruit-flavoured vodka and it looks perfect for summer
It's summertime! That means pool parties, picnics, beach trips and a fair amount of cocktails when you get the chance. And while it's fun to do so in bars and restaurants... it can get a little expensive. Fortunately, you don't even need to leave home to try out one of these new fruit-flavoured spirits.
Smirnoff have just announced a new range of spirits that have been infused with fruit flavours, and it won't be long until they're on store shelves.
Smirnoff Infusions comes in 'Orange, Grapefruit & Bitters' flavour and 'Raspberry, Rhubarb & Vanilla' flavour, both available for £14 a (50cl) bottle. Just go with the recommendation of one part vodka to three parts soda water and a lot of ice, and you'll be golden.
“Smirnoff Infusions is an exciting new addition to our portfolio in the UK," Sarah Shimmons, the brand's marketing manager for Europe, said.
"The process features real fruits infused and distilled individually for the perfect amount of time to allow their natural flavours to be extracted. The resulting drink is blended with Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka and crafted at 23% ABV, to ensure the perfect balance of natural and fruity flavours."
In addition to this, there are still the Strawberry & Rose, Cucumber & Lime and Watermelon & Mint flavours on offer to.
Not only that, but each serving works out at just 87 calories, bringing more fruit and less alcohol to the table. The mixed drink is rated at 5.75% alcohol content, which is about the same as a beer or a strong cider.
So where can you buy them? Wholesalers have been listing the new drink already, but it's nearing release to the rest of us soon enough - with The Sun reporting that it should be available to buy this month.
