Mango Coconut Water Tropical Martini

Is it Friday yet? Let’s pretend it is and that we’re enjoying this.

I’m sure it’s at least 5 o’clock somewhere.

This light, refreshing, and tasty little number is made with Mango Passion Fruit Smirnoff Sorbet Light, a new line of infused vodka.

There are two other flavors, Raspberry Pomegranate and Lemon. I’m a mango fan and that was my favorite.

The vodkas are 25% lower in calories than other dessert-inspired flavored vodkas, each containing only 78 calories per 1.5 ounce serving.

That’s nice when you want to have a drink with your girlfriends, but don’t feel like running extra miles on the treadmill just to make up for those empty booze calories. No need to sacrifice here.

 Now that the weather is warming up and outdoor parties and barbeques will soon be kicking off, I can definitely see myself nursing a couple of these with friends.

I love summer and warmer weather and the whole pace of life. Taking a couple deep breaths, saying ahhh, kicking back, and enjoying life for a minute without worrying about my to-do list, my email, or when I’m going to squeeze in all those errands is sure nice.

   I love that this drink is so mango-ey tasting and reminds me of a tropical vacation and the wind in my hair.

It’s made with pineapple juice and coconut water. The potassium and anti-oxidants in coconut water make it a natural way to prevent hangovers.

Between natural hangover prevention and lighter vodka, let’s all say Bottoms Up.

  1. Oh girl. I’ve never wanted (and needed) a cocktail more!! What a fine job you did with this martini Averie! I am guilty of having one too many sugar-laden drinks, so knowing there is a lighter option out there is wonderful. :) Love your photography. Honestly, you could make dirty dishes look beautiful. PS: I love mango anything. PPS: totally craving martinis right now. PPPS: we need to have martinis together one day!

    • Thanks for the compliments on the pics. For some reason this was a realllllly hard photo shoot. My camera kept trying to autofocus and couldn’t ever find a focal point. Finally I had to shut down all automation and truly just manual focus it. It was so hard with all the reflective surface..the glass, the booze, the booze in the bottles, the 3 glass bottles; it was light bounce city and my camera couldn’t cope. Trusting your own eye with focusing is an act of faith. Good thing I waited til after the shoot to start enjoying the drink :)

      And yes, we HAVE TO have drinks together. Let’s meet in Aruba :)
