National Vodka Day is the ideal time to take your drink to the next level
This simple trick from Smirnoff is all it will take, and before you know it, your drinking experience will be transformed forever - it's all about 'The Smash'.
While it was once a case of having a dry and uninspiring slice of fruit in your drink, nowadays, it's about bringing garnish to the fore - this simple move will give you a delicious burst of flavour. And for an added bonus, it's only 57 calories per serving.
It's incredibly simple to do too - all it requires is swapping the fruit slice for a smash of fruit. It gives you a zesty twist on a classic, providing you with some delicious citrus flavour without adding sugar or artificial flavours.
You don't even need to be an expert mixologist - all you need to do is use your hand to roll the lime and press it, before making sure you add the juice to the Vodka and Soda. Then, serve over ice and enjoy!
For added ease, you only need three ingredients - Vodka, soda water and fresh citrus fruits.
You can then sit back, relax, and enjoy your drink.
Remember, you must be 18+ to drink - you can find out more about drinking responsibly here.
