Summer is upon us, which means more outdoor get togethers and fruity drinks in our hands - and we are SO ready for it! But, if you're trying to cut back on your sugar intake, those fruity drinks everywhere can quickly become your nemesis. Cocktails are a landmine for unwanted sugar (and more sugar) and carbs. This summer, though, Smirnoff has come to our rescue with a whole new line of vodkas that you are probably going to want to stock your shelves with - so get ready.
The brand new Smirnoff Vodka Infusions line has three great flavors starting with cucumber and lime, watermelon and mint, and strawberry and rose. And get this: it boast zero-sugar! Seriously the best news ever, since sugar gets a bad reputation, and rightfully so.
"As a leader in the vodka category, Smirnoff has built a reputation for creating breakthrough innovations based on consumers' evolving taste preferences," Jay Sethi, Vice President, SMIRNOFF, Diageo North America said in a press release. "Now more than ever, consumers are demanding lower sugar options that are still delicious. With the launch of new Smirnoff Zero Sugar Infusions, we are proud to embrace the zero sugar trend in order to grow the category and give everyone 21+ an accessible way to enjoy a zero sugar spirit."
Starting this month, you will find the new line available in stores for only for $12 per 750-milliliter bottle! Inexpensive and delicious? What more could a mom want?
Each bottle of infused only with natural flavors and with only 72 calories per serving, you will never have to feel guilty about having that second glass. We know what we'll be bringing as hostess gifts to every single summer gathering ahead.
"It has never been easier to make sugar free cocktails at home that are packed with natural flavor," the release says. "Smirnoff Zero Sugar Infusions are refreshing-tasting options, perfect for mixing simple, crowd-pleasing cocktails that are one-hundred percent delicious, without all of the sugar." These new vodka offerings are made with zero artificial flavors or colors, and is gluten-free for those who need to be careful.
We're pretty stoked about Smirnoff's mission to make sure that these are aligned with so many people's goals to live a healthier lifestyle without sacrificing taste. Cheers to a guilt-free summer!
