Smirnoff Gearing Up To Bring Back Smirnoff Spicy Tamarind

Smirnoff Spicy TamarindProudly sweet, shamelessly spicy! In celebration of Día De Los Muertos, Smirnoff Vodka, the makers of the world’s No. 1 vodka, are bringing back the iconic Spicy Tamarind to select markets in the United States. The bottle is fitted in a new colorful, Día De Los Muertos-inspired glow-in-the-dark under blacklight design.

Originally made popular in Mexico, the variant combines a bold combination of authentic Mexican flavors – sweet tamarind mixed with spicy Mexican Chillies, notes of lime, and a hint of salt. The vodka is perfect to be enjoyed as a chilled shot or as an ingredient to bring some sweet and spice to any simple cocktail.

Featuring a Calavera at the center surrounded by cempasúchiles (marigolds) and chiles, the new glow-in-the-dark packaging gives a nod to the vibrancy of Mexican culture, combining traditional and modern themes. The bottle also packs a fun and functional surprise, displaying “Solo Y Frio” under blacklight when chilled, so you know it’s ready to drink.

The Spicy Tamarind will retail for $12.99 for a 750mL bottle.
