Just in time for your summer menu development, Diageo Reserve has rolled out a new watermelon edition of Cîroc designed specifically with spritz-style cocktails in mind.

Like Cîroc's flagship liquid, the Summer Watermelon variant is based on a neutral spirit made with French grapes, which is then flavoured with 'delicate and natural watermelon'.

The brand recommends harnessing the new vodka's fruity flavours in a Cîroc Watermelon Spritz and a Cîroc Watermelon Royale.

'We’re delighted to be launching the latest addition to the Cîroc range in the UK,' said Richard Larkin, head of Diageo Reserve GB. 'White spirits continue to lead the way when it comes to seasonal drinks and we are constantly innovating and researching to bring the freshest new flavours to the on- and off-trade.'

The new variant joins Red Berry, Pineapple and Apple in Cîroc's portfolio of flavoured vodkas. It will be available from 29 April.
