Smirnoff

I got the OK from Smirnoff that all of their products are PN/TNA free.  Does anyone drink Smirnoff?  And good flavor recs?

I have never had a drinking age allergic person in the household.  Vodka would have been a pretty safe choice in general before flavored vodka became all the rage.  Which is why I could see Tito's as being safe--they only make vodka, and don't make flavors.  Good to know about Smirnoff, since it's a pretty common brand.

I love Tito's, but have never called.  Like HH said, prior to the fad of flavored vodkas, I didn't worry about allergies with vodka.  If Smirnoff says they're safe, I'd believe them - I just don't really like Smirnoff, so it hasn't been a priority for me to find out.

I'm 34 and seriously have never drank in my adult life.  I feel like I need to loosen up and give it a try.  I got the green apple 6 pack - lol.  I'm a real party animal!  Tito's is made from a part of a company we have in my town (Kent.. I'm assuming grain comes from it).

Oooh, you're talking about the Smirnoff flavored malt beverages not the Smirnoff flavored vodka... FWIW, I've had those and the Mike's Hard Lemonade and the Henry's Hard Sodas before with no problems.  I can't stand beer, but will occasionally do one of those wine cooler type drinks or hard cider.

See how uneducated I am when it comes to alcohol? LOL  I'm starting to wonder if my email was intended for these as well.

If youíve never had alcohol, I might recommend not starting out with vodka. It could be compared to never actually driving to the first time driving taking a race car for a spin.

Finding a cooler type beverage if youíre wanting to try an alcoholic drink might be a good option.

Or you could try a plain vodka like Titoís and mix it with your own trusted fruit juices, so that you can control the amount of alcohol in your drink.

Itís okay to just avoid alcohol, too. Just want to also say that. If youíve made it this far, youíre not missing out on that much.

Do you know how to find the Tito's CS #?  I couldn't find it on the website.  I also would love to try the Staw-ber-itas or whatever they're called.

I work at a country club, and I'm learning about alcohol and it intrigues me.  I'd like to just know what I'm missing out on.  I don't think I'll be a steady drinker after trying a few, but I would love to learn to love a wine every few nights or so.  (I did find out Barefoot wines are PN/TN free -- so if anyone knows of any other wine they know that's for sure PN/TN free.. I'd appreciate the recs!)

Got a hold of Tito's!  Only corn.  Nothing else.  No cross contamination. :)
