Smirnoff Cider - Review!

On a weekend I do enjoy a glass or two of wine but sometimes I fancy a change and drink fruity cider.

A couple of months ago I read that Smirnoff the vodka company were branching out and starting to make and sell fruit cider! It has taken this long for me to find some...


Smirnoff Cider is available in two flavours - Raspberry & Pomegranate and Passionfruit & Lime. Both offer lightly-fizzed cider with a blend of crisp, fruit flavours combined with Smirnoff vodka.

The drinks come in 500ml glass bottles which I think are so cute...These drinks have a real fruity flavour to them and they are light and refreshing....

I noticed that the raspberry flavour was so overpowering that I couldn't really taste the pomegranate and again the passion fruit it was overpowered by the lime....It is such a shame I couldn't taste both flavours in each drink...It really didn't matter though. I still enjoyed them.


I think these drinks actually taste a little like a alcopop rather than a cider....They are not too fizzy and go down so easily. Probably too easily....

Considering that they have vodka in you don’t really feel an alcoholic kick....They are only 4% alcohol so it isn't there in a huge volume but to me there was no sign of the vodka....

I bought these from Tesco on a deal where you get 3 bottles for £5 which I thought was a great deal....I will be buying them again as they made a nice change from the wine and the ciders which I usually drink....

  1. I do like a fruity cider drink. It's a shame the raspberry over powered the pomegranate though, I absolutely love pomegranates and I only really discovered them about a year ago. (How did I get to 50 without trying pomegranate, I don't know?)

  2. Hi Kim, coming from cider country and being raised on Scrumpy, I used to mock these fruity types of cider. I mock no more! I rarely drink alcohol, but when I do my drink of choice is either a sweet red or a fruity cider! I would give these a try for sure.

  8. I've always been a bit of a cider-lover - I hated lager when I was young so this was my preference! I've always associated Smirnoff with Vodka, I had no idea they did cider too x
