Great Cocktails to Kick Off a Spring or Summer Weekend from Ciroc!
It’s time for a cocktail or two. Here are some fun summery type drinks that are precursors to the season. You can make them “light” but not pouring so much alcohol or you can make them however you want them (just select a designated driver!)
Ciroc flavored vodkas have a terrific range of cocktails and wow am I impressed. Expect to see MORE recipes.
Considering this is still Friday, here are 3 cocktails that can be tweaked any way you want them.
