Booze Review: Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmallow

 

Fluffy, not Stuffy…

Unless you totally avoid all bars, restaurants and liquor stores, chances are you’re familiar with Smirnoff Vodka in some way. However, I’m willing to bet that you haven’t had their Fluffed Marshmallow flavor yet. They sent Shoes N Booze a complimentary bottle to check out, so I rounded up my review crew and headed to DV Depot in New York to sit at the bar and give it a try.

 

Claudia Mora (Entertainment Publicist), Enovia Bedford (Jewelry Designer) and I met at the DV Depot bar in New York to try out Smirnoff’s 2 new flavors.

The Sip…

We took our first sip of Smirnoff’s new Fluffed Marshmallow flavor…

The Shot…

We took a shot to see whether or not it goes down smoothly

The Mix…

Our bartender, Erika, mixed it with a bit of cola to see if it plays well with others

The Final Verdict: We all loved Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmallow. It was sweet with a bit of a creamy mouthfeel (you’ll have to taste it to fully understand what that means, but it basically tasted like I was sipping a creamy treat although it was straight vodka). It was also strong enough to provide a buzz pretty quickly. We agreed that it tastes like a holiday drink and will go well into hot chocolate and other warm sippers. My only issue was that you can barely taste the alcohol, so you could almost overindulge before you realize it.

Thanks to Enovia Bedford (reach her via @accessoryremix on twitter or www.accessoryremix.com) and Claudia Mora (reach her via @claudiadecali on twitter or www.matrixpublicrelations.com). Extra special thanks to our bartender, Erika (@Erikasnstyle on twitter), and to the folks at DV Depot ( @dvdepot on twitter).
