Cirocktails!: Inspired by Diddy, AllHipHop.com Gets in the Holiday “Spirit”

It’s Thanksgiving! …A time to enjoy family, friends, and food. It’s also a great time for delicious, holiday specialty drinks.

I’m not a great chef, but I have great taste in music, tell a good joke, and I make a mean cocktail… so, I still get a lot of dinner invitations. If you are at all like me, I have a few great drink recipes to boost your dinner party invites, courtesy of our friends at Ciroc.

Some of them are a little intricate (even for a pro like me), so we’ve also added a simplified twist on the recipes.

And as always, AllHipHop.com encourages you to drink responsibly. Enjoy!

CÎROC Peach Cobbler

Ingredients:

.75 oz CÎROC Peach

.75 oz Cream Liquor

.75 oz Almond Milk

Garnish with caramel syrup, brown sugar, & crushed graham cracker mixture

Simplified: Everyone has brown sugar, you can just rim the glass with that and leave out the syrup and graham cracker mixture.

CÎROC Coconut & Pear

Ingredients:

1.5 oz CÎROC Coconut

2.5 oz Pear Nectar

Splash of Fresh Lime Juice

.25oz Basil Infused Simple Syrup

Garnish with Pear Slice

Garnish with Shredded Sweet Coconut

Simplified: If you can’t find basil infused simple syrup, regular simple syrup and muddled basil would work fine (and probably be much cheaper).

Simple “simple syrup” recipe:

1 part sugar to 1 part water. You can add more sugar if you want it sweeter.

CÎROC Cider

Ingredients:

.5oz CÎROC

.5 oz Pressed Apple Cider

4 oz Hard Sparkling Apple Cider

Garnish with Apple Slice

Simplified: Just add any apple cider and any hard cider (for fizz).

CÎROC Red Berry Grateful

Ingredients:

1.5oz CÎROC Red Berry

.5oz Fresh Lemon Juice

.5oz Mint Leaf Infused simple Syrup

4-6 Muddled frozen Cranberries

Garnish with Cranberry & Mint leaf

Garnish with Lemon Wheel

Simplified: If you can’t find mint infused simple syrup, regular simple syrup will be fine (see above), and you can muddle fresh mint, it only takes a few seconds. You can also leave out the garnishes.
