Summer is finally here and it’s time to slow down and relax. Brunch and cocktails with the girls sounds like a divine idea! Smirnoff is making it easy to indulge in cocktail favorites with their new Sorbet Light Vodka infused with the natural flavors of luscious fruits. For the health conscious, you’ll be pleased to know that Sminoff Sorbet Light is only 78 calories per 1.5 oz. serving. This makes them 25% lower in calories than the leading dessert-inspired flavored vodkas. I know I’m not over here counting any calories, but thought I’d mention it for those who do. Haha! *crunches down on bacon and takes a sip*
Smirnoff Light Sorbet infused vodkas are available in three yummy flavors; Lemon, Raspberry Pomegranate, and Mango Passion Fruit. We had the opportunity to sample the three courtesy of Smirnoff (disclosure). I’ve been sharing them because there’s no way I can possibly drink all the spirits. Anywho. The Mango Passion Fruit is my favorite diluted in lots of Ginger Ale. I’ve been on a tropical kick lately, but what else is new? Smirnoff Light Sorbet can be enjoyed with juice or a citrus-y soda. Here are some simple cocktail recipes provided by Smirnoff. May I add that these would be fabulous slushed up a bit?

Another idea for those looking to steer clear of juice and soda would be a spiked smoothie. Doesn’t that sound so naughty? But just imagine how delicious that would be!
