Cirocktails!: Inspired by Diddy, 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, encourages you to drink responsibly. Enjoy!

CÎROC Peach Cobbler


.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


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.



.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


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.
