Blake Shelton Teams Up with Smithworks Vodka to Make Hard Lemonade

Summer is just around the corner, and it's almost time to break out the frozen margs and cold beers. Country music singer Blake Shelton is here for it, and it turns out his talent extends beyond singable melodies and charming lyrics. Blake Shelton worked with Smithworks Vodka to design a line of hard seltzer lemonades that are perfect for bringing in summer.

Smithworks Vodka

The tagline of Smithworks vodka is "the spirit of the heartland," and they deliver this with their classic, American-made hard seltzer lemonades. Smithworks American-made vodka is made from the water of Lake Fort Smith, along with corn from Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kansas. It is then distilled three times and filtered with charcoal for a smooth, clean finish.

Smithwork's is actually a brand of Pernod Ricard, a French company that produces alcoholic beverages. This leading liquor company has a wide range of brands, from Jacob's Creek cabernet sauvignon to Olmeca Altos tequila. Ricard wanted to bring Midwestern values and laid-back common sense to the table, and he did just that with his new brand. Smithworks has an easy, clean flavor comparable to Tito's, and it's beloved for its accessibility and versatility.

Smithwork's alcoholic beverages are available in sixteen states across America's heartland, and the newest addition will be Arkansas come May. To try some for yourself, head to their website smithworksvodka.com, put in your zip code, and check out the retailers and online options.

Blake Shelton's Hard Lemonade

The newest edition to the Smithworks family is Blake Shelton, bringing his creativity and down-to-earth, heartland perspective to his own line of seltzers. Blake's pick involves four flavors of the hard seltzer drinks; Classic Lemon, Ripe Strawberry, Southern Peach Tea, and Crisp Lime flavor.

Each of these brings its own sweet, summery twist to the classic lemonade flavor. The Crisp Lime flavor is reminiscent of lemon-lime soda and was designed after Blake's beloved combo of lime and lemon. These seltzers are only 5% ABV but don't be fooled, they're too delicious not to be a little bit dangerous.

In a press release, Blake described the new Smithworks hard seltzers as tasting "like liquid sunshine. Infused with the flavors of crisp and refreshing lemonade, it's the perfect way to kick back and cool off this summer." Celebrate warm weather and time with friends this summer with Blake's tasty hard lemonade.
