Die hards will say they are not as good as the real thing, but given that they take a fraction of the time, I’m prepared to compromise (and it’s not much of an ask).
With one or all three of these bottles in the fridge, I am ready for a Friday night drink on Monday or Tuesday or Sunday.
I reckon I could hide the bottle and impress some of my friends with my cocktail making ability as well.
There are three flavours:
Vodka Mojito –a blend of Smirnoff Vodka, Kaffir Lime Liquor and natural mint flavour.(my fave)
Grand Cosmopolitan -Smirnoff Vodka, Triple Sec Liquor and a splash of cranberry juice.
Pomegranate Martini - Smirnoff Vodka, pomegranate juice, Meyer Lemon Flavoured Liqueur, and natural lemon flavour.
Here are some comments from my testing panel of seasoned drinkers-
Baristerboy: I was surprised by the Mojito - it wasn't syrupy and sweet. The Pomegranate Martini was like a Double Black with red stuff.
Perpetualstudent: A cheap solution to a cocktail when you're out that hasn't lost any of the taste. Sweet but still has a subtle bite.
Che13: The Mojito had an interesting taste - definitely a cheap but still classy way to drink. Not too sweet or strong. I really like it. It's good with mint.
- Keep your Smirnoff Cocktails chilled in the fridge
- The Grand Cosmopolitan is good chilled, poured straight into a tall glass over ice, or shaken with ice first. Garnish with lemon or lime.
- The Vodka Mojito can be topped with soda water and garnish with a wedge of fresh lime and a handful of mint
- The Pomegranate Martini can be served chilled or with the juice of 1/2 an orange and a 1/3 lemon squeezed in a Martini Glass
Smirnoff Cocktails retail at $22.99 at bottle shops.
