ICE Margerita


May 23, 2018  — Smirnoff ‘s Splashy Patriotic Bottle for Red, White & Berry Vodka

Looking for a way to include the good old red, white and blue on your bar for Memorial Day?  Then pick up Smirnoff’s vodka flavor of Red, White & Berry in an eye-catching red, white and blue bottle.

Red, White & Berry

Smirnoff RWB VodkaRed, White and Berry has a pleasant mixed berry flavor.  We caught blackberry on the nose but more raspberry when we tried it with ice.  Serve chilled as a shot, on ice or in a cocktail.  Here’s one with the right name for patriotic holidays – ‘MERICA MULE:  Combine 2 oz. of Smirnoff Red, White & Berry Vodka, 3 oz. ginger beer and .5 oz. of fresh squeezed lemon juice in a tall glass with ice.  What could be easier!

Red, White & Berry will be available nationwide from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  It comes in a good selection of sizes:  50 ml (PET), 750 ml (glass), 1 L (glass) and 1.75 L (PET).  It is 30 % ABV with the suggested retail of $12.99 to $14.99 for the 750 ml.



Raspberry Rosé

SparklingSeltzer Raspberry RoseSmirnoff is also introducing a new flavor to it Spiked Sparkling Seltzer line for summer.  Raspberry Rosé joins Berry Lemonade, Cranberry Lime and Watermelon.  We love the flavor, the slim line can and best of all, 0 sugar, 1 gram of carb, and only 90 calories.  The 12 oz. cans come in six or mixed 12-packs.  Suggested retail is $8.99 for a six-pack.  Alcohol is a low 4.5% ABV and you must be of legal drinking age to purchase.






ICE Margarita

ICE MargeritaAnother new summer introduction from Smirnoff is cans for ICE Margarita in the flavored malt beverage portfolio.  Yes, it does taste like a Margarita should and it will be hugely popular this summer.  It’s a bit tart, a bit sweet, a bit salty and plenty citrusy and no trouble at all to prepare if you’ve got a bottle opener, or if you go for the new cans!  It comes in an 11.2 oz bottle, 4.5% ABV and around $8.99 for a six-pack.






Smirnoff  ICE  Red, White & Berry flavor

Ice RWBThe Red, White & Berry flavor also has been added to the Smirnoff ICE flavored malt beverage line.  We like the flavor of the RWB Vodka but found this one tasted like cough syrup!   It tasted better when we gave it a second chance a few days later but it still didn’t make the cut for us.
