Happy Friday! You guys know I love a good cocktail and today I have three great cocktails for you!
Smirnoff recently sent me a package with their new Sorbet Light line of vodkas! What I love about these vodkas is that they are infused with natural flavorings of berries, lemon, passion fruit and luscious mango! And you know what is even better than that? These vodkas have 25% less calories than the leading dessert-inspired vodkas out there at only 78 calories per serving!
All three flavors are so light and refreshing which makes them absolutely perfect for summer drinks! One of my biggest pet peeves about many fruity drinks is the sugar, which fruity drinks are notorious for. When it’s really hot outside, a cold fruity drink sounds so perfect and I really hate it when I take a sip of a drink and just taste ridiculous amounts of sugar. Sugar= calories. And who wants that during the summer months?! During the summer, I want drinks that are light and refreshing and the new Sorbet Light line of vodkas do just that! And considering all the fun summer parties and BBQs, I don’t want to drink my calories, I want to eat them!
These vodkas will give you that fruity flavor without all the sugar and calories. To keep drinks nice and light, I like to add a splash of soda, a splash of juice and lots of fresh citrus juice. You really don’t need to add tons of sugary juices to make a good cocktail! By keeping your drinks on the lighter side, you can indulge in all of those burgers and s’mores with a little less guilt!
The Mango Passion Fruit vodka is perfect if you are looking for a tropical-inspired cocktail. With some coconut water and pineapple juice mixed in, you’ll feel like your own your own little vacation!
The next one I tried was a lemon pomegranate punch with the Lemon Sorbet vodka. My husband and I both really liked this one. I’m crazy about anything that tastes like lemon and a lemony drink totally makes me think about summer!
And finally, the Raspberry Pomegranate. It was really a toss up between this one and the lemon vodka for which was my favorite! I actually decided to bring this one to a work party I had last night and everyone really liked how light and refreshing it was. And it’s so easy to mix up and it’s only 92 calories for a serving of the punch. You really can’t beat that!
