4 Ciroc Vanilla Recipes To Shake Up This Summer
There are not many things I love more a good martini. Over the years, my husband and I have lived in places where it was impossible to find a decent martini (looking at you Vernon, Texas). As a result, I started making my own martini’s (and other cocktails).
Not to toot my own horn, but after years of practice, I can make some pretty good cocktails. Vodka is my favorite and more specifically, Ciroc Vodka. Due to my wheat allergies, other vodkas like Grey Goose give me horrible hangovers after drinking very little. But Ciroc is made from grapes and does not give me any trouble after drinking a shot or three.
I could not find very many Ciroc Vanilla Recipes, so I decided to create my own. I used the Root 23 Simple Syrup four pack as a foundation for some of the cocktails. The four pack includes one of each unique flavors (Vanilla Ginger, Cherry Almond, Grapefruit Basil, and Maple Cinnamon) and they all pair well with Ciroc Vanilla Vodka.

Vanilla Moscow Muletini
- 2 oz. Ciroc Vanilla
- 1 oz. Ginger Liquor
- .5 oz. Vanilla Ginger Simple Syrup
- .25 oz lime juice
Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake it up. Pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a lime slice.
French Toast Martini
- 1 oz. Ciroc Vanilla
- 2 oz. RumChata
- 1 oz. Cinnamon Maple Simple Syrup
Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake it up. Pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Ciroc Strawberry Cooler
- 1 oz. Ciroc Vanilla Vodka
- 3 oz. strawberry lemonade
- 4 oz. sparkling water or sprite
- 1-2 fresh strawberries
Muddle the strawberries in a shaker or glass. I love muddled fruit in my drinks, so I have a cocktail muddler that I found on Amazon (less than $10!). Add the vodka and strawberry lemonade into the muddled strawberries and stir or shake. If you used a shake, pour it into your glass. Add sparking water or sprite to taste. I prefer La Croix sparkling water (which has a tasty strawberry pineapple flavor that is perfect for this Ciroc Strawberry Cooler).
Ciroc Cherry Blossom Martini
- 1.5 oz. Ciroc Vanilla Vodka
- .75 oz Amaretto
- .5 oz. Cherry Almond Simple Syrup
- .5 oz. Cherry Liquor (or grenadine)
Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake it up. Pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a cherry ( I did not have any when I made it, so I used a lemon slice).
