Yummy Summer Cocktails with Smirnoff Sorbet Light

by Nicole on May 28, 2013

I love drinks made with vodka and have been a flavored vodka drinker for some time.  I prefer it as it doesn’t give me a headache at all and is lower in calories than other liquors.  I usually just grab a flavored vodka and add some soda to it for a lower calorie mixed drink.  I was excited to see this Smirnoff Sorbet Light since the flavors looked amazing and it was a light version!

Putting a spin on the flavored vodka category, SMIRNOFF® Vodka is making a splash with a new-to-market delicious, reduced calorie line of vodka specialties, infused with natural flavors: SMIRNOFF Sorbet Light. SMIRNOFF Sorbet Light ups the ante with three fresh flavors inspired by the sweet, icy and light taste of sorbet. This new line of vodka specialties is 78 calories per 1.5 oz. serving and creates scrumptious, light-tasting cocktails.

Beginning with SMIRNOFF No. 21 Vodka, the world’s best-selling vodka, SMIRNOFF Sorbet Light is infused with the natural flavoring of fresh-tasting berries, tart pomegranates, luscious mangos, juicy passion fruits and zesty lemons creating three unique, reduced calorie vodka specialties: SMIRNOFF Sorbet Light Raspberry Pomegranate, SMIRNOFF Sorbet Light Mango Passion Fruit and SMIRNOFF Sorbet Light Lemon. With this brilliantly delicious and guilt-free line up, the best way to enjoy SMIRNOFF Sorbet Light is in good company and of course, responsibly.

Yummy! My favorite was the raspberry pomegranate and Jamie liked the lemon.  We experimented with a few mixers and I kept coming back to my soda, I like a mixer that doesn’t add additional calories! We did try a few of the creations from the Smirnoff website and I wanted to share our favorite one with you:
