The time of holiday parties is approaching quickly. Are you ready? If you’re tired of the same old recipes and want to really wow your guests, try some of these recipes from Ciroc and Double Cross.

Cîroc Vodka is made from two different types of French grapes—mauzac blanc and ugni blanc—and is distilled five times before distribution. This distillery is located in southern France and the vodka’s name is a mashup of two French words: cime (peak) and roche (rock). In 2003, Ciroc was founded by Jean-Sebastian Robiquet. In 2007, Diddy (aka Sean Combs) partnered with Ciroc to oversee all marketing and to help popularize the brand. https://www.ciroc.com

Ciroc Vodka

Seven times distilled, seven times filtered and made with estate-grown winter wheat and pure, crisp Tatra spring water, Double Cross received a rare 95-point rating from Wine Enthusiast. The New York Times calls it “extremely smooth and charismatic;” Forbes says “Double Cross hit it out of the park.” Double Cross is master-distilled in small batches in a historic, Slovakian village. As an added bonus, you can have your bottle engraved with any name at no extra cost. What a perfect gift for a family member, co-worker or friend! doublecrossvodka.com
