Smirnoff Crandazzle Recipe


  • 1.5 oz SMIRNOFF SORBET® Light White Peach
  • 1.5 oz Diet lemonade
  • 1.5 oz Cranberry juice
  • Lemon wedge for garnish

Mix ingredients over ice and garnish.


As soon as I received these new flavors I just had to make some drinks of my own and for the first one I added 1.5 oz of SMIRNOFF SORBET® Light Summer Strawberry vodka with 1 – 2 oz of Sprite to make a refreshing strawberry fizzy martini.  I used a red sugar to rim the glass and garnished it with a strawberry for that perfect final touch.


Next, I did a twist on the classic hairy navel by mixing 1.5 oz of SMIRNOFF SORBET® Light White Peach vodka with 6 oz of orange juice and garnished it with a peach slice (or you could use an orange wheel).  This is such a smooth sweet drink and would actually be a great recipe for using in a large punch bowl at parties.  Just toss in a bunch of orange wheels so guests can garnish their own drinks and it is sure to be a huge hit !
