Get Ready For Summer With CÎROC

May 1, 2017

Food & DrinkLifestyle | by Candid Magazine

The piña colada just got a style makeover, courtesy of luxury French vodka house, CÎROC.

It’s no secret that we love CÎROC. Hailed as the world’s most sophisticated vodka, it has kept models, celebrities, influencers and designers liquid at our last several issue launch parties on the roof terrace of Soho’s Century Club, and it will be back on the menu for the launch of our Luxury Issue, taking place in June over London Fashion Week Men’s.

Available from today throughout the UK, is CÎROC’s newest expression: the limited-edition CÎROC Summer Colada. Taking cues from that delicious cocktail that the Puerto Ricans made famous a few times over, the Summer Colada was crafted using natural pineapple and coconut and conveys a taste of coconut cream with a tropical fruit note.

The bottle itself has also been summer-fied, whereby CÎROC’s standard blue orb has been touched by metallic gold, as has the logo and the cap – all on a pristine white bottle.
