Super Nash Bros and Burger Head Collab For a Limited Take-Home ‘DIY’ Box

Smirnoff peach iced tea

Smirnoff Drops More Flavours for Your Favourite Seltzer

We’ve rounded up the best Seltzer flavours in the past, but it looks like we might need to reestablish things here. Smirnoff has launched two new flavours – Peach Iced Tea and Natural Orange to the line-up off the back of their very successful Mixed Berries drink. Fast becoming the drink of preference among blokes like us (cough, cough) the brand has quickly become the number one seltzer brand in the country with seven flavours to choose from now – including Mixed Berries, Mango, Natural Lime, Raspberry Rosé and Passionfruit. The new Smirnoff Seltzer range is fruity in flavour and refreshing in taste, featuring the ready-to-drink mix of Smirnoff No.21 Premium Vodka, sparkling water, hints of each flavour for a clean and crisp tasting serve that is best sipped chilled from the fridge, or over ice in a glass. Here are the fast facts;

  • 36% fewer calories than a standard 150ml glass of wine.
  • 53% fewer calories than a 375ml can of beer.

The 250ml Slim Can four-pack retails for $19.99. Check them out via the link below.
