Is it the best alchopop?

Disadvantages: The price
Smirnoff do a range of fruity alchopops that are not as harsh as wine, or spirits. They are occasionally enjoyed at parties as well as out on the town.
Why I wanted to try this...
I wanted to try this because on my birthday, I never want to get too drunk, I want to enjoy a nice drink without getting too drunk. Plus I love the taste of alchopops in general. I am used to drinking other kinds of low percentage drink but I had never tried Smirnoff.
Depending on the bottle you get, they can come in cardboard packaging. The bottle themselves are a see through glass with various labels. The one on the front says the Smirnoff name and there is one on the neck of the bottle as well as the bottom.
The two main flavours are lemon and lime. The clear bottles with the cloudy liquid and red labels are the lemon flavour. The bottles with the black label and clear liquid are the lime favoured ones. On top of this, Smirnoff have made other flavours however, I have not seen them. These flavours include raspberry, mango, pomegranate, loads of flavours!
It is a 4% acholholic beverage,
Should not be consumed by children!
Should not be consumed when pregnant or nursing!
What my senses thought....
The flavour is okay, it tastes like a bottle of cloudy lemonade with a tinge of alcohol, it has not got a strong kick.
It's a very very sweet drink and I have noticed it does not make me gassy like other drinks.
I love the look of the liquid, like I have said it looks like cloudy lemonade.
It smells like lemonade and if this makes any sense, it smells fizzy.
Well I tried it for the first time last night, my grandmother in law gave me one. I had to use a bottle opener to get the cap off. I found the bottle very easy to hold. It tasted much like cloudy lemonade, quite citrusy in fact. As I said, it did not make me gassy much at all. I did notice that you could not taste much alcohol but it did give me heartburn.
You can buy the big 700ml bottles as well as the 275ml bottles in supermarkets and shops.
Sometimes the big bottles are on offer 2 for £5. And you can buy 4x275ml bottles for around the same price.
The flavour is nice and it is not too strong
I also found the bottle very attractive
They are cheaper than some alchopops
The price, even though they are cheaper, it is still quite expensive for a drink, I could buy a bottle of wine for what I pay for Smirnoff..
Would I recommend?
Yes I would, but only if someone else was buying!
Summary: Good little drink
