Color me happy, Smirnoff has released some new flavors just in time for the upcoming holiday season. Flavored Vodka and Water is my go-to drink because it is incredibly low in calories, you are hydrating and trust me-you look prettier in pictures than when you drink wine.
When I first received this great news from Smirnoff, I immediately thought of making Caramel Apple Jello Shots using the Kissed Caramel instead of the Schnapps. I will warn you, they are messy to make....but well worth it. If you are invited to a Halloween party, this is a must do. The recipe from That's So Michelle is here
From their press release:
With the holiday season kicking off at the end of the month, SMIRNOFF® Vodka is introducing two new flavored vodkas – Iced Cake and Kissed Caramel – giving adult consumers a reason to raise their glasses and celebrate every occasion this holiday season. As the world’s number-one selling and most awarded vodka brand, these decadent new flavors are the best way for consumers and fans of SMIRNOFF to honor every event, big or small.
Created from award-winning SMIRNOFF No. 21 Vodka, SMIRNOFF Iced Cake and SMIRNOFF Kissed Caramel flavored vodkas join SMIRNOFF Fluffed Marshmallow and SMIRNOFF Whipped Cream in the brand’s increasingly popular line of confectionary flavored vodkas.
Just as there are two faces of the moon, two edges of a sword, and two sides to every story, SMIRNOFF is offering consumers two smooth, creamy tastes to experience: the sweet flavor of Iced Cake and the sultry essence of Kissed Caramel. To indulge either side this Halloween, Thanksgiving, New Years, and every holiday in between, try whipping up the Upside-Down Cake cocktail with SMIRNOFF Iced Cake or the Caramel Candy Apple cocktail with SMIRNOFF Kissed Caramel:
1.5 oz. SMIRNOFF Iced Cake Flavored Vodka
1 oz. orange juice
1 oz. pineapple juice
Build in a Highball glass over ice and top off with Club Soda. Garnish with sprinkles, a cherry and an orange twist.

1.5 oz. SMIRNOFF Kissed Caramel Flavored Vodka
1.5 oz. apple juice
.25 oz. lemon juice
.25 oz. simply syrup
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with think apple slices and a caramel rim.
