I Finally Found the Best Frying Pan — and It Doesn't Stick

Pure Spring Water + Alcohol = Awesome?

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we are once again entering the land of the weird. Actually, scratch that, make it we are entering the world of ridiculous marketing efforts. This time, in an effort to appeal to your health-conscious selves, the folks at Smirnoff have created a beverage that plays on your desires to drink something healthy.

The beverage, which is low in alcohol content, is the first malt beverage to contain pure spring water and malt-based alcohol. I guess this means your water will now dehydrate you?

Has anyone tried it, what do you think? Is it a nice alternative or is it just a gimmick?

To check out the commercial,

I'm still not entirely sure I understand this. Has Smirnoff made an attempt to cut out the need to buy mixers? Or is this an attempt to jump on the healthy living bandwagon and make more money?

my boyfriend and i saw it a while ago on the shelves and had a good laugh about it...walked by it a couple more times and always giggled...and then decided we had to try it. i mean, come on, water and alcohol, right? but then we tried it and it is actually delicious! not something i'd certainly buy everyday but it tastes a lot like vodka and sprite and was super refreshing.

First of all I don't drink so this is coming from a non-consumers perspective, but I can see the possible appeal. What makes it any different than a rum & coke or something along those lines? It's just premixed. And if someone wants something alcoholic but they don't want the extra calories of pop or something, I can imagine this might be an OK alternative. Especially for outdoor kind of parties where something in a bottle is convenient.

I think they are delicious, and they arent expensive.

I think it's just another marketing ploy to appeal to younger drinkers, even though Smirnoff would never admit it. If they make it seem less like alcohol and more like water, then it's 'harmless,' right? They suck.

i'm confused like the rest of you... is it literally just water + vokda? WHY?! why would you do that? is it flavored water + vodka? cause ew, just mix it with gatorade or vita water... freaks. but the commercial was mesmorizing! :)

i tried it one night and it was nasty. it was supposed to have a 'touch' of citrus, however tasted like a bad soda.

I don't get it. If you want water, drink water. If you want alcohol, drink alcohol. Where are people going to drink this? At the gym?

Much easier to mix your own water and alcohol if you really desire to do so...

Best Week Ever actually made a spoof on alcohol water calling it "Adequite" after Lindsay Lohan's favorite word. and then all of a sudden, Smirnoff comes out with something similar to BWE's joke. It was a joke, Smirnoff!!!
