So, with Christmas, done, there’s less than a week left until 2015. You know it. We know it. And whether your personal aim is to bid this year a fond, misty-eyed adieu, or to enjoy a hearty chuckle as the doorknob strikes 2014 squarely between the cheeks on its way out, both of those sentiments will feel infinitely better with a drink in your hand. Or in each hand, even. (Who are we to judge you?) Whatever your New Year’s Eve drink-mixing jam might be, we’ve got you covered seven ways from Sunday (with a little help from our friends, CÎROC Ultra-Premium Vodka and Limoncello di Capri, of course.) Salud!

Unlike most other vodkas, which are made from grain, CÎROC Ultra-Premium Vodka is crafted from fine, succulent French grapes, distilled a fifth time at the Distillerie de Chevanceaux in southwest France. These specially selected grapes create the distinctly fresh and smooth taste of CÎROC Vodka. CÎROC reminds everyone to celebrate responsibly.
