Smirnoff Sorbet Light

smirnoff sorbet light vodkas recipes

Low-calorie liquor is a big deal these days. From the multimillion dollar Skinny Girl empire down to the traditional liquor brands, it seems low-cal may be the “what’s next” after flavored vodkas. Smirnoff has introduced 3 flavors of low-calorie vodka recently to the market and dubbed it Sorbet Light.

Is it sweet? Yes. Does it taste like sorbet? Yes. Is it good? Yeah, I think so. For comparison purposes, 1 ounce of Smirnoff (the red label one) is 70 calories. An ounce of Sorbet Light is around 50 calories. So you’re looking at a 30% drop in calories overall. Each of the flavors makes for some good sweet cocktails, and I made the following drinks with Smirnoff’s recipes to try them out (pictured above).
