After attending the Ciroc Pineapple launch in Cape Town at the end of October, which took place at the One & Only hotel, there’s no doubt that this will be the drink of summer 2015.
The ultra-premium vodka, of which Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has been the U.S. face for since 2007, exhibits just the right combination of a distinctive flavour mixed with the epitome of Le Good Life – and the Pineapple flavour [new to South Africa] is next in line for the throne.
The Ciroc brand can be described as stylishly sophisticated – with a twist – so it’s no surprise who Ciroc SA has efficiently selected to represent the brand as ambassadors, namely rapper Da L.E.S, presenter Bonang Matheba, Dj Dimplez and fashion designer, David Tlale.
These ambassadors were hand-picked; each of them talented, passionate about their craft and successful. It’s only natural that the stature these ambassadors’ represent live up to the hype of the very brand they put their names and faces to, right?
And it does.
This vodka, like no other, is infused with flavours of freshly cut pineapple [fancy!] and refreshing on the palate. That said, what’s the best way to celebrate the coming of summer? Cocktails. So here’s something new to try this season. The smooth tropical-tasting vodka mixes with orange juice and champagne for a spin on the Mimosa, or you can tone it down with tonic or dry lemon.
Check out the Ciroc site for its extensive selection of recipes.
With all that Bonang, Da L.E.S., DJ Dimplez and David Tlale have in store for the summer, you’ll be seeing a lot more of the Ciroc brand come festive season.
Like I said, get ready for a Ciroc Summer. It’s going to be hard to miss.
Available at Ultra Liquors and Makro countrywide
