Smirnoff is one of the world’s most well-known and used vodka brands. With origins in Moscow dating back to 1864, their original vodka is a popular and affordable option that people worldwide use to make cocktails.

Everyone of the legal drinking age has probably had a drink made with Smirnoff at least once in their life.

While their original vodka is a popular choice, the brand has experimented with making other vodka flavors throughout the years. 

Smirnoff offers over 30 different flavors to choose from, making them a leading brand in the industry.

Next time you want to step up your cocktail-making game, these are some of the best Smirnoff flavors available.  

Smirnoff Orange

Starting off the list of best Smirnoff vodka flavors is orange. Orange vodkas make an excellent option for brunch drinks, mixed drinks, and fancy cocktails.

Smirnoff orange vodka has a great orange flavor and smells like fresh oranges. It’s one of their most popular flavors since it’s versatile. 

You can use orange vodka with orange juice to twist the classic screwdriver cocktail. It’s delicious, and you’ll forget there’s even vodka in it.

It also tastes delicious in Sprite or cranberry juice, but my favorite cocktail with Smirnoff orange vodka is a blood orange martini.

Besides the orange vodka, you’ll need blood orange juice, orange bitters, and an orange twist.

Smirnoff Lime 

Another classic Smirnoff vodka flavor is lime.

There’s something about lime-flavored alcohol that not only tastes delicious, but it pairs well with a bunch of different mixers, and it’s refreshing in a cold drink on a hot summer day.

But, you can enjoy their lime vodka any time of the year, not just in the summer. 

Smirnoff’s lime vodka is one of the best because of the number of drinks you can make with it.

It’s excellent in seltzer water with extra lime juice, tasty in Sprite, Coke, Diet Coke, and almost everything you can imagine. If you want a great summer drink, try adding it to your favorite lemonade.

Smirnoff Raspberry 

Across many vodka companies, you’ll see a raspberry flavor. Smirnoff’s raspberry is delicious and perfect for mixing into any cocktails you’re making.

Some people even love it chilled and on the rocks. My favorite refreshing drink to make with Smirnoff’s raspberry vodka is a mixed drink with a little bit of soda water and a splash of cranberry juice.

Smirnoff Red White & Berry

Even if you’ve never tried the Smirnoff Red White & Berry vodka, you’ve probably seen it in stores or online.

The bottle is stunning and features all three colors mentioned in the name. It’s a limited edition vodka that you should try at least once to get your hands on.

It reminds me of childhood red, white, and blue rocket popsicles. 

So, what does this Smirnoff vodka actually taste like? Well, you can expect to taste cherry, citrus, and blue raspberry flavors all bundled into one with this drink.

I recommend chilling it in your freezer and then trying a bit on the rocks first to appreciate the flavors.

Smirnoff Cherry

Some cherry vodkas on the market only remotely taste like real cherries, but I love that Smirnoff cherry vodka has a bold and tangy cherry flavor.

It’s not my favorite vodka to drink on the rocks, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give it a try. 

As for what you should mix Smirnoff cherry vodka with, the options are abundant. Like some of their other vodka flavors, this one mixes well with everything.

It’s excellent in pineapple juice,  lemonade, or cranberry juice. For a great twist on a classic cosmopolitan martini, sub the regular vodka for the bold cherry vodka. You won’t regret it.

Smirnoff Green Apple

Apple-flavored vodka isn’t everyone’s first choice for vodka, but Smirnoff’s green apple vodka is a great option.

It’s tart and a little sweet like green apples, making it have all the flavors you’d want in an apple vodka.

I think it tastes best when you put it in the freezer before you serve it or mix it into a cocktail. 

You can mix this vodka in many things, but a great one to try is this recipe by Smirnoff. It’s called their green apple splash.

It’s super simple, and all you’ll need is their green apple vodka, your favorite lemon-lime soda, and a lime twist to garnish it off. It’s crisp and refreshing.

Smirnoff Kissed Caramel

Not all flavored vodka has to be fruity. Smirnoff’s kissed caramel vodka is one of the sweetest options on this list, but it’s delicious.

It smells and tastes like you’re eating real caramel candies, but without it getting stuck in your teeth.

I love making holiday beverages with this vodka, but it’s great year-round.

While you can make these drinks whenever you want, I have some favorites you might want to try with this vodka.

It’s tasty in a caramel appletini, hot chocolate, and even in an Irish coffee during brunch. You can add it to an espresso martini to add a hint of caramel to this classic drink.

Smirnoff Pomegranate

One of Smirnoff’s best yet most complex vodka flavors is their pomegranate.

The flavor profile of this vodka is pomegranate, but it also has apples, citrus, honey, and a subtle hint of the Chinese Osmanthus flower. It’s a semi-sweet vodka that’s perfect in sweet drinks or more tart options. 

Try mixing this pomegranate vodka with tonic water for a super simple recipe. It’s very simple but tasty. You can even add a splash of lime juice to it.

If you want something a little more complex, a martini with pomegranate vodka, Grand Marnier, and pomegranate juice with ice is to die for.

Smirnoff Sour Watermelon Vodka

Smirnoff sour watermelon vodka is by far one of their most exciting and best creations.

If you love watermelon, then you’ll love this vodka. It has all the flavor of their watermelon vodka, but that added layer of sour makes your lips pucker.

You’ll be able to see it on the shelves easily with its bright pink bottle.

The one thing about this sour watermelon vodka is that it’s not the greatest to mix with various mixers.

The best way to drink this vodka is to chill it for a few hours and then serve it on the rocks to sip on or as a shot.

Even if shots make you cringe, it’s sour but will go down smooth, and you’ll probably want more.

Smirnoff Sourced Red Ruby Grapefruit

Grapefruit can be a polarizing flavor, whether it’s fruit, juice, or vodka.

Smirnoff’s sourced red ruby grapefruit vodka is made with real grapefruit juice, making it one of the easiest vodkas to serve and drink on the rocks. The grapefruit flavor is robust, so keep that in mind before trying it.

This vodka has real grapefruit juice, so there’s nothing wrong with sipping it on the rocks.

Be sure to chill the vodka thoroughly or add plenty of ice because it doesn’t taste great, warm, or room temperature.

Besides on the rocks, adding it to some soda water with a twist is the best way to drink this vodka.

Smirnoff Vanilla

Rounding off our list of the best Smirnoff flavors is their vanilla vodka.

This is one of their flavors that go great with their kissed caramel vodka because they’re both so sweet and taste like dessert. For those who don’t mind sweet vodka, you might even be able to sip it on the rocks. 

If you’re wondering how you will drink Smirnoff vanilla vodka on Earth, you have more options than you might think.

You can make alcoholic vanilla Coke or Pepsi. My personal favorite is to add it to an espresso martini, coffee, or creamy vanilla martini
