Advantages: Convenient alcoholic drink. Cheap. Available in many pubs and shops
Disadvantages: Sickly taste. Too fizzy. Quite a boring drink.
This used to be the drink of my choice when I was younger and began drinking when going out etc. However, I have completely gone off the drink now due to bad experiences and getting bored of the sickly taste. The drink is fizzy which can sometimes make you get a sore stomach which is something you definitely don't want on a night out. The flavour also has too much of a citrus, quite bitter taste at the back of your mouth which to me is not enjoyable at all. I think I have put myself off this drink entirely! However, it is a cheap drink so if you are out all night and stick to the one drink, it can be cost effective. Many pubs and bars sell these in the bottle without pouring it in to a glass or putting a straw in the top, although I prefer to drink a drink like this in a glass or with a straw. However, the bottle does prevent spillages more than a glass would and is also harder for someone to spike your drink. Although, if someone does want to do that- I'm sure they'll find away!
There are two variations to the Smirnoff Ice. There is Smirnoff Ice Smooth (red bottle) and Smirnoff Ice Sharp (black bottle). The bottle I am reviewing is Smirnoff Ice Smooth (red). The idea is that an alcoholic drink has already been combined with a soft drink, making the combination easier to drink, pleasant to taste and convenient at the same time. The drink has a nice citrus, lemon taste to it and has an alcoholic percentage of 5%.
The drink comes in a 275ml glass bottle or a 700ml bottle. The 275ml bottle costs roughly £1.28 in Asda and the 700ml bottle costs nearer £3.00. If it is a party of function you are having, it would be more cost effective to buy the larger bottle.
