Smirnoff Vodka and Ocean Spray Cranberry is non carbonated so unlike Cruisers thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no bubbles to cause a bloating effect later in the night. The lack of carbonation also makes it quite a light liquid which goes down very smoothly. I think on a hot day it would be quite a refreshing drink to enjoy sitting around the pool. Could be compared to a raspberry cordial, and you really canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t taste the vodka. Best served in a long glass over ice and sipped slowly to savour the flavours. This is definitely something you need to keep track of as you could easily enjoy too much and it would creep up on you. Having said that, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know that the sweet and subtle flavours are something you could drink all night.
