ABOUT SMIRNOFF VODKA’S TWO NEW INDULGENT, CELEBRATORY FLAVORS
Created from award-winning SMIRNOFF No. 21 Vodka, SMIRNOFF Iced Cake and SMIRNOFF Kissed Caramel flavored vodkas join SMIRNOFF Fluffed Marshmallow and SMIRNOFF Whipped Cream in the brand’s increasingly popular line of confectionary flavored vodkas. Just as there are two faces of the moon, two edges of a sword, and two sides to every story, SMIRNOFF is offering consumers two smooth, creamy tastes to experience: the sweet flavor of Iced Cake and the sultry essence of Kissed Caramel.
“As pioneers in the world of cocktail culture, we’re always experimenting with new tastes and trends to expand our portfolio and give consumers delicious, high-quality flavored vodka options suitable for all responsible drinking occasions,” said Dan Kleinman, Brand Director for SMIRNOFF. “SMIRNOFF Iced Cake and SMIRNOFF Kissed Caramel make the perfect base for any celebratory cocktail; whether it’s a birthday, an engagement or a promotion at work, these flavors work so well with those key moments that call for raising a glass.”
Formerly reserved exclusively for the characters of VH1’s hit scripted television show Single Ladies, SMIRNOFF Iced Cake and SMIRNOFF Kissed Caramel are now available for consumers of legal drinking age at liquor and grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $12.99 for a 750mL bottle.
I enjoyed trying both of these new flavors. I tried them at room temp and over ice and found that I preferred them to be chilled. I liked both, but my favorite of the two was the Iced Cake. The Iced Cake is sweet, and it tastes and sort of smells like a vanilla iced cake. There’s no mistaking the flavor of vanilla. It isn’t bitter at all. The Kissed Caramel had a completely different flavor. It was stronger in that it was spicier but yet it still was not bitter. You can definitely taste the caramel, but there’s another flavor as well I couldn’t quite place, it wasn’t unpleasant I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
Here are two recipes you can make with the new flavors.
- 1.5 oz. SMIRNOFF Iced Cake Flavored Vodka
- 1 oz. orange juice
- 1 oz. pineapple juice
Build in a Highball glass over ice and top off with Club Soda. Garnish with sprinkles, a cherry and an orange twist.
Kissed Caramel Appletini
- 1.5 oz. SMIRNOFF Kissed Caramel Flavored Vodka
- 1.5 oz. apple juice
- .25 oz. lemon juice
- .25 oz. simply syrup
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with think apple slices and a caramel rim.
