Smirnoff is continuing to add to their line of low-calorie vodkas thanks to the release of two new, seasonal flavors, Sorbet Light Summer Strawberry and Sorbet Light White Peach. Similar to other Sorbet Light flavors, which include Raspberry Pomegranate and Pineapple Coconut, the two newest additions are low on the calories with only 78 calories per 1.5 oz. serving and full on flavor. Sorbet Light Summer Strawberry boasts a flavor reminiscent of ripe strawberries while Sorbet Light White Peach keeps it heavily peachy with the addition of flavors similar to that of “juicy sweet peaches.”
Pinnacle Vodka Launches Pinnacle Amaretto
Famous for their variety of whipped and fruity flavors, Pinnacle Vodka is switching things up a bit with their newest addition, Pinnacle Amaretto. Pinnacle Amaretto is described as a vodka that flaunts “a full-bodied almond flavor with undertones of cherry and a smooth, lingering cocoa finish” and will likely be a welcomed addition to all those fall cocktails.
“Pinnacle Vodka is known for pioneering high quality premium vodka with out-of-this-world flavors,” said Jason Dolenga, Senior Brand Director of Vodka at Beam Suntory, in a statement. “We’re committed to continually providing new, fun flavors that we know our Pinnacle fans will enjoy. Amaretto is no exception.”
Look out for both Pinnacle Amaretto and Smirnoff’s newest Sorbet Light flavors at a liquor store near you this season.
It’s only January 6 and already my daydreams are being fueled by thoughts of boozy drinks enjoyed while beachside. And with the announcement of the new Smirnoff Sorbet Light Pineapple Coconut, I’ve really found myself longing for the tropics-inspired cocktails prominent during the warmer months. News of Smirnoff’snewest addition is still pretty fresh, so I can’t quite tell ya when you’ll be able to get your hands on a bottle, but rest assured that you’ll likely have this latest spirit in time for your homegirl’s pool party and all those other warm weather celebrations.

Last month, Smirnoff introduced their two newest flavors, Cinna-Sugar Twist and Wild Honey. And now that these boozy, new additions are beginning to work their way into the market, Smirnoff is gradually revealing a handful of new drink recipes that are made using Cinna-Sugar Twist and Wild Honey. I came across the drink recipes for the “Classic Beauty” and “Nutty Honey Love” via Smirnoff’s Facebook page earlier this week and I have to say that I’m pretty impressed and eager to try the two at home. Not only do they look amazing, they’re also cream-based. And I’m a huuuge fan of any cream-based cocktail especially for the fall/winter seasons. You can find the recipes for both the “Classic Beauty” and “Nutty Honey Love” below. And cheers to all things elegantly boozy!

Smirnoff is continuing to appeal to those with a sweet tooth with the announcement of their two newest flavors, Wild Honey and Cinna-Sugar Twist.

While you ponder ways to put your bottle of Smirnoff Wild Honey and Smirnoff Cinna-Sugar Twist to good use, Smirnoff has released a handful of easy-to-make recipes that should hold you over in the meantime.

It’s no secret that cocktails are loaded with calories, but over the past few years a number of brands have introduced a series of low-calorie spirits. Joining the ranks of the calorie-conscious is now Smirnoff Vodka. With spring only a matter of days away, the announcement of Smirnoff Vodka’s new Smirnoff Sorbet Light comes at an absolutely perfect time. The lower calorie line comes in a variety of flavors and is only 78 calories per 1.5 oz. serving so you can skip a crunch or two the next time you hit up your local gym.
“SMIRNOFF Sorbet Light is the next flavor experience for those women who strive to lead a balanced lifestyle, but never at the expense of delicious cocktails,” said Sandhya Padmanabhan, Brand Manager for SMIRNOFF. “Today’s multifaceted woman inspired SMIRNOFF to think differently and create a product that would make guilt free, delectable drinks that truly embody the refreshingly light taste of sorbet.”
The refreshing trio of flavors available in Smirnoff’s new line include Smirnoff Sorbet Light Raspberry Pomegranate, Smirnoff Sorbet Light Mango Passion Fruit, and Smirnoff Sorbet Light Lemon. If you’re interested in getting your hands on Smirnoff Sorbet Light, you can purchase a bottle for only $15.99.
Also, for all my Atlantan’s (and anyone else with great weather this weekend), how perfect would a Smirnoff Sorbet Light cocktail be during this amazing weekend we have coming up?
I hardly ever post any of the plethora of drink recipes I come across while browsing Facebook because there’s just way too many of them, but this cocktail looked so absolutely delicious that I couldn’t pass on sharing it with you guys. I came across Smirnoff’s “Iced Cake Shakes” drink recipe while scrolling through my FB timeline yesterday and while I love a great craft cocktail, I for one know that it’s pretty impossible to pass on any drink that combines both vodka and ice cream. It’s just not gonna happen. Smirnoff you have surely awakened my sweet tooth with this one.
Late last week I had the opportunity to sample Smirnoff’s newest flavor profiles, Kissed Caramel and Iced Cake, at an exclusive event at Atlanta’s World Of Coke and if you’re a fan of dessert-inspired cocktails then you’re going to absolutely love these drinks featured at the event. I was able to sip on both the tropical fruit-laced “Upside-Down Cake” and the sinfully sweet “Kissed Caramel Appletini” and it was pretty surprising how similar they tasted to the desserts they’re named after especially the “Kissed Caramel Appletini.” I’ve included the recipe for both cocktails below as well as the “Iced Strawberry Shortcake” cocktail which is made using Smirnoff’s Iced Cake flavor.
2 oz. SMIRNOFF® Iced
Cake Flavored Vodka
1 oz. Orange juice
1 oz. Pineapple juice
Top off with club soda
Garnish with sprinkles, cherry and an orange slice.
Kissed Caramel Appletini
2 oz. SMIRNOFF® Kissed
Caramel Flavored Vodka
1.5 oz. Apple juice
.25 oz. lemon juice
.25 oz. simple syrup
Shake all ingredients & strain into martini glass. Garnish with thin apple slices and a caramel rim.
With their two newest flavors, KissedCaramel and Iced Cake, Smirnoff vodka is yet again targeting those with quite the sweet tooth. To celebrate the launch of their newest flavor profiles, Smirnoff held an exclusive shindig at the World Of Coke (a.k.a the Coca-Cola Museum) here in Atlanta. The Kissed Caramel and Iced Cake cocktails, which included the “Kissed Caramel Candy Apple ” and “Upside-Down Cake,” were of course flowing as were a number of other sweet treats. As an added bonus guests went home with a gift bag filled with Smirnoff headphones, a Smirnoff Iced Cake-infused cupcake, and small bottles of the Kissed Caramel and Iced Cake flavors.
Check out a few pictures from the event below and stay tuned for Kissed Caramel and Iced Cake drink recipes.
