It combines equal parts of Smirnoff Ice, a popular malt beverage, with WKD Blue, a brightly colored, blueberry-flavored alcoholic drink. Often served in a pint glass, this concoction typically appeals to those who enjoy sweet, fruit-flavored beverages. The Smurf is leisurely stirred to blend, resulting in a casual, fizzy, and refreshing cocktail that carries a playful nod to the blue-hued characters of the same name.
