"I think it's safe to say we're all happy to put 2020 in the rearview mirror," said Jennifer Holiday Hudson, Smirnoff Trademark North America Brand Leader. "Because so many people had to put their plans on hold last year, we really wanted to help bring fun back this summer and safely give people experiences they've been dreaming about. What better way to do that than with the return of Smirnoff Red, White & Berry, bigger and better than ever."

From tricked out campers, to epic trips**, to custom experiences to novelty serving trays and one-of-a-kind Smirnoff swag†, your summer has never had this much flavor.
"This is my first campaign as part of the Smirnoff family and to know we're going this big at the start, I can only imagine the things we will be able to celebrate together," said Smirnoff partner Anthony Anderson. "To be a part of giving away 2,021 dreams, trips, experiences, swag – you name it – feels good. I missed my friends and family too last year and look forward to enjoying some good times safely. Make sure you grab some Smirnoff Red, White & Berry and enter the Smirnoff Summer of 2,021 Dreams!"
