This is a sponsored post by Smirnoff Sorbet Light.  All reviews/opinions expressed in this post are unbiased and based on my personal view. And yes I did want my title to sound like Buzz Lightyear was saying it. Updated May, 2019.

When the weather warms up, I like to try to find a new “go-to” drink. Since this summer I will be vacationing where temperatures reach well over 100 degrees (which means I will be forced to wear a swimsuit), I want something that is delicious and refreshing but without a ton of calories or sugars.

Smirnoff sent me their new line of infused vodkas, Smirnoff Sorbet Light, to try and they are exactly what I was looking for. They have only 78 calories per 1.5 ounce serving which makes them light so I don’t feel super guilty about having a cocktail. 

The best part is they taste natural and do not have any sort of diet-y aftertaste.

Smirnoff Sorbet Light Flavors

The Smirnoff Sorbet Light Vodkas come in three, perfect for summer flavors, Lemon, Raspberry Pomegranate and Mango Passion Fruit. Perfect for making light cocktails that feature citrus or fruit flavors. 

The flavors are classic and can be mixed with just an ingredient or two to create fun to drink cocktails.

I’m an iced tea lover so this black tea based cocktail with Smirnoff Sorbet Light Lemon had to be tried.

  • .5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • .25 oz Agave Nectar


  1. Mix well and serve over ice.

So easy. And YUM! Plus it’s crazy refreshing. I love that it isn’t overly sweet and I still get my daily iced tea fix! Lemon and tea pair so well, don’t they?

Passion fruit is one of my favorite flavors ever so I really enjoyed the Mango Passion Fizz using Smirnoff Sorbet Light Mango Passion Fruit. Mango and Passion Fruit bring some light tropical vibes while the club soda keeps it bubbly and bright.

These Smirnoff Sorbet Light recipes couldn’t be easier, right? 

But the big winner was the Raspberry Lemon Punch with Smirnoff Sorbet Light Raspberry Pomegranate. Total crowd pleaser. The muddled fresh raspberries gave it another layer of flavor and the lemonade kept this familiar but with a twist.
