Voli Light Vodkas
I received Voli Light Vodka to experiment with these cocktail recipes. This product comes in many fine flavors such as the smooth Lyte, zesty Lemon, sweet Raspberry Cocoa, delightful Espresso Vanilla, and delicious Orange Vanilla. Natural ingredients create a delicious blend of fruit flavors and vodka.
In addition to creating mixed drinks, consider enjoying a smooth drink on the rocks with any of these flavors. Voli Light Vodkas are a great way to enjoy a drink, but avoid the calories that come along with many sweet and consequently sugary drinks. The brand is co-owned by singer-songwriter Fergie and features products with 25 to 40 percent less calories than other brands. These cocktails will set the mood for you and your loved one to kick back and enjoy each other’s company.
