Smirnoff Drops New Hard Soda Range in Time For a Sizzling Summer

The lightness of a seltzer but the flavour of classic RTD.

It’s not even summer yet, and we’re already sweltering in this heat. Luckily, one of our favourite vodka brands is here to quench our thirst with hard soda.

Smirnoff has just released a hard soda range. Think of it as hard seltzer, but better. It has the effervescence of seltzer but the flavour of a classic RTD.

There are three flavours to choose from, infused with real fruit juice. Sip on a classic lime and lemon, or channel your Splice-licking days with pineapple and lime. Then there’s the thirst-quenching peach and lime‚ÄĒclassic.

And for those big nights out, Smirnoff has two other hard sodas with a 6% ABV. For comparison, the aforementioned hard sodas have a 3.5% ABV. These harder hard sodas are available in Yuzu citrus and pink grapefruit flavours. Despite a higher ABV, there are about 2.2 grams of sugar per 100 ml.

Pick up the new Smirnoff Hard Soda range in liquor stores nationwide. The Smirnoff Soda Peach & Lime and Pink Grapefruit Crush Hard Soda are available exclusively at Dan Murphy’s and BWS.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
