You could be adventurous and make your own from scratch? I was thinking of having a crack at it myself.
I am looking at making something like a blueberry mash, use the sugars in the fruit and mix that with a wine yeast. Let it ferment until done. Distill that till through a pot still for a clear flavoured alcohol. Then have the normal vodka, or neutral spirit and mix the two together. Water down to a specific % and then add a bit more sugar and 1 or 2 little seeds of yeast then bottle it, and it should carbonate, either that or use carbonation drops. Leave it for a couple of months, Hopefully it will recreate something like a Smirnoff or something. (thats what i'm hoping).

Pitfall i can see in this is that the alcohol will be too high in the bottle already and wont let it carbonate. But we'll see.

The other sollution if possible would be to keg a batch and gas it up, no probs with carbonation there.

theres a product called flavour burst which comes in a variety of flavours. all u need to do is add vodka and soda. they make around 5 litres i think. i think queensland brewing company puts them out.
