How to Make the Cîroc Watermelon Spritz

How to Make the Cîroc Watermelon Spritz

I love a Spritz any time of year! One that tastes of watermelon, well, that brings me right back to summer! That hint of bubbles give me something to celebrate and I found that the Cîroc Watermelon Spritz is now one of my favorite cocktails.

My love of watermelon

Living with a Cypriot whose breakfast in summer is watermelon and halloumi without fail, I wake up to a breakfast table full of it every morning. What’s incredible is the watermelon is always so sweet, that’s what I am used to!

When I opened the bottle of CÎROC Summer Watermelon Vodka, I was sent right back to that breakfast table. It was summer in a glass!

The origin of the Spritz

We actually have the Germans to thank for the spritz, aka spritzen (to spray)! In the 19th C, the Austro-Hungarian troops arrived in the Veneto and immediately began ordering Italian wine, as one does.

The urban myth is that this wine was a tad stronger than they were used to, so they spritzed a bit of water in. Thus, the Spritz cocktail as we know it was born!

Watermelon + Spritz!

The Spritz cocktail has evolved to mean anything with bubbles! So put Ciroc Summer Watermelon together with Lemonade and Soda Water and you get one delicious cocktail!
