This summer, premium vodka brand CÎROC has re-launched its limited edition flavour, CÎROC Summer Watermelon.

Following the popular trend of watermelon flavours and songs (Harry Styles’ Watermelon Sugar), the CÎROC Summer Watermelon adds this fruity and delicious flavour into each sip of cocktails this season. Distilled five times to ensure the highest quality, CÎROC Summer Watermelon vodka is then imbued with natural flavours of watermelon to create this remarkable spirit (adding to a range of other flavours including Red Berry, Pineapple, and Apple).

The frosted red and white bottle appears as though it has already spent a spell in the freezer, but we at Vada suggest you that still give the spirit a couple of hours chilling. We did before trying out a couple of cocktails that we’ve included for you to try at home: a CÎROC Watermelon Frosé, a Summer Watermelon Sparkle, and a Watermelon Twist.

For further inspirations of recipes look out for the #CIROCSummerWatermelon on social media.

  • 1 shot of CÎROC Summer Watermelon vodka

CÎROC Watermelon Frosé

  • 1 large watermelon
  • CÎROC Summer Watermelon vodka
  • 1/2 bottle pink Moscato wine
  • Lime juice

This cocktail needs some preparation in advance. Chop the top off a whole watermelon. Scoop out the flesh, blitz in a food processor and freeze in small batches (ideally in ice cube trays). Leave to freeze for at least 4 hours.

When ready to serve, add 200ml of CÎROC Summer Watermelon vodka with half a bottle of pink Moscato wine, the juice of 1 lime and as much of the frozen watermelon ice cubes as fits in your blender. Blitz to a slushy consistency. Serve either in the hollowed out watermelon or in glasses with more ice. Garnish with fresh mint.

  • 1 shot of cranberry juice
  • Sugar-free lemonade
  • Soda water

CÎROC Summer Watermelon is available to purchase through various drinks retailers, apartment stores and Inkd, who produce personalised bottles.
