With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to share some festive GREEN cocktails with you for your enjoyment. And don’t worry, I am not talking about cocktails that call for green beer !
I am all about providing you options, and this year, we’re sharing three new recipes – St. Paddy’s Spritzer, Fizzy Leprechaun and our Lucky Melon Cooler – Smirnoff Cucumber-Lime Zero Sugar Infusions, Smirnoff Ice Green Apple and Smirnoff Seltzer Cranberry Lime. Even better, these spritzers and melon cooler recipes contain zero added sugar.
