Sip Into Spring With Seagrams Vodka Flavors!

Seagrams Vodka is a trusted name in the American vodka industry. It’s produced using high-quality American grain which when 5x distilled, gives it a smooth and clean taste. As we know, the vodka market is saturated with flavors. From cupcakes, chocolate, and whipped cream, to mango, melon, and even sriracha, it’s just so overwhelming. I find in times like this, it’s always nice to have some go-to vodka brands you can rely on that also offer some pretty cool flavors for spring and summer cocktails!

Seagrams doesn’t produce a lot of flavors, but the ones they do make, are smooth like the original vodka too. The Juicy Watermelon is fun for summer and is very refreshing. Mix this with some muddled watermelon, seltzer, and lime juice for a fun spritz cocktail. I myself also love using this in a rosé sangria for summertime, it’s unique and delicious for a party. Another refreshing flavor that’s great year round, but perfect for summer is the Ruby Red Grapefruit flavor. It’s perfect for summertime sipping in the hot weather!

If you’re into stone fruit flavors, Seagrams Vodka also just launched a Golden Apricot flavor! Made with all natural flavors, this is the only golden apricot vodka you will find on the market. It’s sweet yet tart and perfect for sangria, apricot martinis, punch bowls, and so much more.

Even though the weathers still a bit chilly here on the East Coast and many other parts of the USA, it’s nice to think about Spring, which is approaching in the next week. Be sure to keep an eye out on Instagram and SommInTheCity.com for some spring inspired cocktails coming up. In the meantime, here are some Seagrams Watermelon cocktails, courtesy of Seagrams Vodka!
