How to drink Ciroc vodka
Ciroc vodka is a premium brand of vodka made from French grown grapes instead of the potatoes, wheat, rye, or corn that is typically used to make traditional vodkas. Juice is squeezed from the grapes. The juice is then cold-fermented and distilled.
This distilling process leads to a smooth, refined taste that works well in making fine vodka cocktails. There are a variety of classic and original recipes that can be used to drink Ciroc vodka.
