6 Late Summer Cocktails For This Weekend

Getting together with friends and/or family this weekend? With the end of summer coming, we have just the cocktails to fuel your celebration, whether that’s a barbecue, watching sporting events on television, or binging on a favorite series.

These recipes are courtesy of our friends at CÎROC (TM), makers of Ultra-Premium Vodkas that are gluten-free and distilled from fine French grapes. This process of using grapes was inspired by the company’s more than a century of wine-making expertise.

The fifth distillation of the vodka takes place at the historic Distillerie de Chevanceaus in the South of France, giving it a distinctive flavor with an exceptionally fresh, citrus taste.
