Summer is just around the corner. This means patio gatherings with friends, chic dinners and showing off your mixology skills with new cocktails. Being the mogul that he is, Sean Diddy Combs and the Ciroc Ultra-Premium Vodka team have cooked up a new flavor just in time for the season.

The limited-edition Ciroc honey melon—releasing April 2023 for $30—is slated to be the drink of the summer. It is a full-bodied spirit made with vodka distilled from fine French grapes, brimming with subtle notes of melon, honey and other natural flavors, culminating in a taste experience that is both boldly distinct and elegantly smooth.

"From developing the flavor and making sure it has a taste that’s undeniable, to perfecting every detail of the packaging and design, our focus with Cîroc Honey Melon was to deliver a special premium product that is truly innovative in the category,"  Combs said in a statement. “We have established a history of excellence and with the launch of this limited flavor, we will continue setting the standard as a luxury spirits brand.” 

In true Diddy fashion, the new flavor will launch with a series of over-the-top events and activations to usher in its arrival. Beginning April 14, 2023, you can check out a one-of-a-kind weekend experience that will feature unlimited food & beverage offerings and a lineup of special guest DJs that will reimagine the country club experience at Soho Desert House during Coachella. A roster of ancillary events will also be unveiled throughout spring.

If you're a fan of Ciroc or just looking for something a little more refreshing as warmer weather rolls in, the spirit brand dropped this cocktail recipe for us to share.
