When Smirnoff asked me to try their just launched Smirnoff Sorbet Light vodkas I was completely game to do a little pre-party with some of my girlfriends (and how cute are these party favors of sorts?). I took full advantage to play hostess and made some snacks that complemented the alcohol that is 25% lower in calories than similar vodkas available. The infused vodkas come in Lemon, Raspberry Pomegranate and Mango Passion Fruit which we mixed with orange pineapple juice and diet ginger ale and cranberry juice.
To accompany the cocktails I made sweet bananas (roasted with honey, butter & lemon juice and topped with hazelnuts), lemon hummus and blue corn chips, melon wrapped prosciutto, raspberries with chocolate chips (easiest, tastiest little treat ever) and all served with a bowl of candy, naturally. The drinks were fun, refreshing and delicious – perfect for a rainy night when you need to lift your spirits before a night out. Not to mention they just look summer-y and Taylor made them look extra yummy as she played bartender.
- 1.5 oz Mango Passion Fruit Smirnoff Light
- 1.5 oz Pineapple Juice
- 1.5 oz Orange Juice
- 1.5 oz Raspberry Pomegranate SMIRNOFF SORBET™ Light
- 2 oz Diet Ginger Ale
- 1 oz Cranberry Juice
I think I’ll use what is leftover from this little pre-party for a fun get-together over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Cocktails + BBQ food? Yes please.
