Summer is on the way and we will all be looking out for that tipple we can drink in the sun to cool down.
Well, it looks like Smirnoff has provided the perfect beverage to keep us refreshed as we soak up the rays.
The vodka giant has just announced a new range of fruit-infused spirits that will be with us very soon, the Mirror reports.
Smirnoff Infusions comes in two flavours – “Orange, Grapefruit & Bitters” and “Raspberry, Rhubarb & Vanilla” – selling for £14 a bottle.
The recommendation is to mix one part fruity vodka with three parts soda water with a lot of ice.
Sarah Shimmons, the brand’s marketing manager for Europe, said: “Smirnoff Infusions is an exciting new addition to our portfolio in the UK.
“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.”
The even better news is a serving works out at just 87 calories.
The bottles have more fruit, and less vodka, than standard Smirnoff which means the strength is just 23 per cent ABV compared to the usual 37.5 per cent.
This means the mixed drink comes in at 5.75 per cent – about the same as a strong cider or beer.
Wholesalers are listing it already and Smirnoff told The Sun that shoppers should be able to buy it from June.
