You asked, we answered

A devoted reader posted a question about the new Smirnoff vodka-water product.
It's a "malt beverage" called
Smirnoff Source, but it's not on Smirnoff's Web site.
And there's a product called Hydra, "A lightly carbonated spring water beverage infused with all natural raspberry extracts that delivers 7% alc./vol."
Hmm... I'd like to try this, but I'm not keen on the artificial flavor. I don't like the fake taste of flavored water.

Mary has tried it. What about others? Have you tried it? Would you?

Thanks Stepf!

The Smirnoff one I think is called "Source" It was not flavored but had a little carbonation. It really tasted just like a tonic or soda water, and was VERY refreshing. Another good thing to do with wine is to make a spritzer, where you mix 1 part wine with 1 part soda water. It saves a few calories for the same volume of beverage.

Good idea! I sometimes drink (as my Brit friends call them) slimline tonics, but most U.S. watering holes don't have diet tonic. Plus, I try to avoid artificial sweeteners.
