Smirnoff Ice - Lovely refreshing taste
Author Name: shopalotkt
Advantages: Tastes great, easy to drink
Disadvantages: Quite expensive
Smirnoff Ice is lovely and I used to drink it all the time but haven't had it for a while now.
It is quite expensive to buy in pubs as it normally costs me about £2.50 and the bottle is not very big. It is cheaper to buy in the supermarket though and is quite often on offer so you can get about 8 bottles for £8 which is better but still not a cheap drink. You can buy it in larger bottles in the supermarket as well as the small bottles.
Smirnoff ice is a combination of smirnoff vodka and a lemon flavour. It is slightly fizzy but not so fizzy that it makes me feel bloated which is good. It has a very lemony taste and is very refreshing and needs to be served ice cold to taste its best. It is a nice drink which doesn't really feel like you are drinking alcohol. It is quite strong though so even though it goes down easily you do need to be careful how much you are drinking because it is easy to get drunk on these. Trust me I know. They are nice and sweet but as they are lemon they also taste slightly bitter. They do get a bit sickly though if you drink a lot of them at once.
The bottles are clear and the Smirnoff Ice is a cloudy colour inside. The bottles are very plain and don't loo too girly so I think they appeal to both men and women.
They are great for drinking with friends and I would definately recommend Smirnoff Ice.
Summary: A great alcopop
