My love for flavored vodka is endless. It is honestly one of the best ways to drink a cocktail if you are watching your weight. Drinking any of the great Smirnoff flavors with water is delicious and low calorie. Also, as you are drinking water, you are hydrating thus lessening chance of a dreaded hangover. Genius, right??
I was still celebrating last year's launch of Smirnoff's Iced Cake and Kissed Caramel flavors and when I saw this post of their Facebook, I was instantly hooked!
Who doesn't love Root Beer Floats? A great way to take a piece of your childhood into the grownup world. Don't forget that in a month and a half is the Kentucky Derby, and here is a very cool spin using their new Root Beer Float flavor:
Root Beer Julep
1 oz. Smirnoff® Root Beer Float flavored vodka
.5 oz. Bulliet® Bourbon
.25 oz Maple Syrup
Muddle mint in Maple syrup, add vodka, bourbon, and crushed ice.
Garnish with Mint Sprig Bouquet.
