Ciroc Archives – LUSHWORTHY

Surprise, surprise. It has now been revealed that Ciroc’s latest offering, Ciroc VS (Very Special) is actually a French brandy. Given that past Ciroc releases have included coconut, apple, and red berry-flavored vodkas, the decision to release a brandy is certainly unexpected. My guess is that Ciroc VS is Ciroc’s response to the increase in millennials purchasing craft bourbons/whiskeys. Ciroc putting out a bourbon/whiskey isn’t really an option, but a French vodka releasing a French brandy does work.

Given that brandy has always come across as a fall/winter spirit to me, I wanted to create a summer-friendly Ciroc VS cocktail perfect for the upcoming holidays. Given that sangria is absolutely the first cocktail that comes to mind when I think of brandy, I knew that “Ciroc Very Special Sangria” was the one. I also wanted to offer up a classier cocktail, so I opted for a twist on the Old Fashioned cocktail, which I’ve dubbed the “Amour Old Fashioned.”

You can find both drink recipes below, and look out for Ciroc VS when it’s release this June. Cheers!

Ciroc Very Special Sangria

INGREDIENTS

1 Bottle Red Wine (750 mL) 1/2 Cup Ciroc VS 5 oz. Ciroc Pineapple 1 Cup Orange Juice 1 Cup Pineapple Juice

Pineapple Chunks And Orange Slices

On April 1, the new Ciroc Summer Colada is set to hit shelves nationwide. With Ciroc Coconut and Ciroc Pineapple both serving as major hits for the vodka brand, Summer Colada is sure to be as lit, turnt, [insert flame emoji here] as a spirit can get. Although the latest boozy addition has yet to be released, I went ahead and put on my Lushworthy thinking cap to craft the following drink recipes. Check ’em out!

After receiving some bogus intel from rapper French Montana via Snapchat, it has now been confirmed that Ciroc Mango is the newest Ciroc flavor. Congrats to all you mango-loving, Ciroc sippers out there. Personally, the only tropical fruit flavor I really rock with is pineapple, but I can imagine that Ciroc Mango would make for some pretty tasty, end of summer cocktails. In fact, I’ve created a handful of Ciroc cocktails that I think will be a worthy addition to your Labor Day festivities, or any festivity for that matter.

It’s currently unclear when Ciroc Mango will be released, so for your convenience I’ve gone ahead and made recipe cards for my cocktails, so you can easily print and/or save them. Cheers!

I knew watching DJ Khaled on Snapchat at five in the morning would eventually pay off one day. In a recent Snap from DJ Khaled, which featured French Montana, the rapper revealed that Ciroc French Vanilla will be the newest flavor from the vodka brand.

“Look out for the new French Vanilla Ciroc,” French Montana says in the Snap.

I haven’t heard any news of Ciroc French Vanilla, so this is either super exclusive info or French is pulling our strings. Given that the rapper is a Ciroc Boy, it does seem somewhat believable. At the same time, his name is French Montana, so his comment could be a play on that.

Other flavors from Ciroc currently include Pineapple, Apple, Amaretto, Red Berry, Peach, and Coconut. If the news is true, how do you feel about French Vanilla as the newest Ciroc flavor?

Well, that came out of nowhere. Pleased to meet you, Ciroc Apple Infused Vodka. Just in time for the upcoming holiday season, Ciroc has welcomed yet another flavor to its portfolio. According to a press release, Ciroc Apple Infused Vodka “boasts a vivid green apple flavor infused with a touch of ripeness and a subtly smooth, crisp finish.” Be sure to check out these cocktails when you do get your hands on a bottle of Ciroc Apple Infused Vodka. Cheers!

Diddy a.k.a Puff Daddy rakes in some serious dough when it comes to Ciroc Vodka. Quite honestly, if my association with a brand brought in that much money, I’d be extra too. Thankfully though, Diddy has gifted us with some hilarious moments during the times when his promotion for the brand has gone a little left.

That Time He Became A Ciroc Tyrant…

During a club appearance in Atlanta, Georgia years ago, Diddy quite literally threatened to smack the taste (of vodka, I’m assuming) out of a Grey Goose drinker’s mouth for sipping on the competition. I guess you have to appreciate the man’s dedication. I guess…

That Time He Jumped Over A Bull…

Bad Boy Records founder turned vodka slinger turned bull wrangler? Well, not quite. In a video promoting Ciroc, a CGI Diddy swan-dived over a bull. Yes, swan-dived. Quite the elegant swan-dive too. Definitely a quirky, albeit extra way to promote the “perfectly smooth” Ciroc.

That Time Ciroc Time Traveled…

Although I can’t say that Diddy was fully behind this move, I will say that it takes guts to break the rules of space and time to promote your brand. During the premiere of VH1′s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, bottles of Ciroc were spotted on the wall of a bar, during a scene with Left Eye. Only problem is the scene took place in the 90s, and Ciroc was reportedly introduced to the U.S. market in 2003.

That Time His “Downton Abbey” Spoof Featuring Ciroc Wasn’t Really Funny…

Err…better luck next time? Appearing as “the first black cast member” on “Downton Abbey,” Diddy poured rounds of Ciroc, expressed his love for numerous women, but didn’t really make us laugh [sad face].
