Review: Smirnoff Tuscan Lemonade

Another entry into the growing market segment of ready-made cocktails, Smirnoff’s Tuscan Lemonade is a definite winner.

This isn’t syrupy corn-syrup sludge and requires no doctoring out of the bottle. It’s Smirnoff vodka, limoncello, and lemon juice (and probably a smattering of other, unspecified natural flavors), and a touch of artifical color.

The result: Far better than I could have imagined, a crisp and tart drink that tastes strongly of lemons and has a light touch of limoncello’s signature bitterness. While it’s nothing I’d describe as complex, it’s very refreshing served over ice, it’s incredibly, at a mere 30 proof, surprisingly drinkable, and, last but not least, ridiculously affordable, too.

    I love the smooth taste of Tuscan Lemonade….Since I have been drinking Lemon Drop Martinis, I have fallen in love with the whole lemon drink idea…..Now I can enjoy my martinis without have to make a mess mixing up the ingredients…Just add a slice of lemon to the glass……

    I have to totally agree. Had it at a friend’s house, and she had put it in the freezer for as long as it took to get slushy (several hours? overnight?). No extra ice needed this way to water it down! And I’ll tell you, I’m hooked – this drink is maaaarrrrrvvvvveelllllllous!

    I started looking for posts about this drink because hey,it’s Friday & I’m having it as a pre-dinner drink & may I say this stuff is STRONG!! So this is one premade cocktail that I would buy again. I definitely can’t have two wineglasses full of these or I’d be on the floor,but it is DELICIOUS!!! I’m a lightweight I guess,but 2 & I’m DONE>
