2 New Zero Sugar Vodka Soda Recipes

I was sent a bottle each of Smirnoff Zero Sugar Infusions Strawberry & Rose vodka as well as their Cucumber & Lime vodka to try.  I was not required to do a post in return.  These are my honest opinions of what I thought of them.

Flavored vodka.

Way back when we started drinking there was only vodka.

Then came flavored vodka, which was fun for a while.

Quite a few years later I decided that I liked plain old vodka again.  No flavors, just plain.

Well times have changed around here once again.

I am enjoying the flavored vodkas more so now.  I think maybe it has to do with the fact that they are getting pretty creative with their flavors lately.

No I'm not talking about raspberry vodka, marshmallow vodka or cake vodka.

I'm talking about the way they mix different flavors together to create something new and refreshing.

Like these for instance these:

Now before I was sent these bottles to sample a friend of mine had me try Ketel One Botanical Peach & Orange Blossom.


I also tried their grapefruit & rose was good, but the rose flavor was a bit too strong for me.  I'm not a floral smell kind of to drink it......ahhhh, not for me.

When I received these bottles I was hoping that when I tried the strawberry & rose flavor that I wouldn't taste the rose as much as I did with the Ketel One.

I didn't!  I definitely tasted the strawberry more then the rose and in by book that's EXACTLY what I wanted!

When I made the Strawberry Rose & Soda cocktail I was pleasantly surprised with how refreshing the strawberry tasted and how I really couldn't taste the rose flavor as much.  Very nice!

Now let's talk Cucumber & Lime.

I'm not a cucumber water girl.  Well.....I'm not a flavored water girl period.
I know there are those fancy Fruit Infused Water Pitchers as well as those Fruit Infused Water Bottles....I just like my water with ice.

Anyways where I was going with that was, when I think of fancy flavored water I think of cucumber water.  

Looking at that bottle, that's what was in my head.  Cucumber water.

So I sucked it up and made myself a Cucumber Lime & Soda cocktail as well:

Once again.

I was pleasantly surprised.  This was not a bad cocktail, EVEN with the cucumber flavor!

Now I haven't even touched yet on what is written on the front of each of these bottles.


Yup, you saw that right, zero.

OK, the other thing I was thinking (besides cucumber water) was, how are they going to make these taste good and have zero sugar in them?

Right right, but a lot of vodka's have no sugar in them.


But what I'm seeing is that somehow this vodka with it's zero sugar claim has somehow brought the calorie count down as well.

A regular bottle of Smirnoff vodka has more calories then these bottles.  Interesting, right?

OK, I know what you're going to say.  

Isn't that how many calories is in the regular Smirnoff vodka?

Nope!  That amount is for less vodka.  Their serving size is 1.5 ounces.  Mine is 2 ounces!

There you go!  MORE alcohol.  LESS calories.  It's a win-win!

OK, so you're probably ready for me to share the "How To" part of this post?  Yup, I knew it!

These two cocktails are so super easy to make.  

Two simple ingredients.  Can't get better then that.

First you add the vodka.

Next you add the club soda.

Stir and garnish.

Simple and easy and you get to enjoy these refreshing cocktails.

I have to say, I am a fan of the Smirnoff Zero Sugar vodkas!  I know there is one more zero sugar flavored vodka that I have not yet tried, but am hoping to.  That one is Watermelon & Mint and I've heard it's pretty delicious!
