Ciroc vodka presents two West Indian inspired vodka cocktail recipes

As the summer ends and the weather for many of you begins to cool down as we prepare for winter, I prefer to think of all those Caribbean islands that I can't wait to visit again soon. That's why I was so excited to share these two recipes by CÎROC and Mixologist Brandon Sutton inspired by the recently canceled West Indian Day Parade.

These two recipes use CÎROC Pineapple and Coconut vodka that are five-times distilled, made with fine French grapes, and masterfully infused with natural flavors of pineapple and coconut.

With flavorful cocktails using  Pineapple and hibiscus as well as refreshing cucumber paired with coconut,  wants to bring the West Indian Day parade to consumers this Labor Day Weekend.

While creating the recipe, he drew inspiration from the flavors unique to the West Indies and Caribbean countries, noting “Sorrel is so prevalent in the West Indies and pairs so incredibly well with  Pineapple” and “the  Coco Cucumber always makes me feel like I’m on vacation on the beach and cucumber water adds a nice, crisp, refreshing balance.”
