The only thing better than summer itself is the perfect summer drink. (This isn’t negotiable; it’s a straight up¬†fact.)

It’s not wrong to want a delicious beverage that’s going to cool you down in the heat, whether you’re kicking back on a patio or getting ready before a big night out. But not all cocktails are created equal, and¬†who wants to settle for less?

Thankfully, you’ll never have to settle again.

C√éROC has launched a limited edition premium drink for this season that provides the base for sweet and savoury cocktails: C√éROC Summer Colada. That’s why we’ve rounded up a few patio-perfect cocktail recipes that you can make with it.¬†If it’s good enough for a hip hop mogul like Diddy (a noted fan), you can be sure you’re going to like celebrating your hustle with this drink.

The CÎROC Summer Colada is all fresh pineapple abound with a touch of coconut cream. Then a fruity tropical note carries you into a long, smooth finish… and it’s divine.

Lucky for you, Torontonians, C√éROC is working with La Carnita¬†and creating a boozy C√éROC Summer Colada-flavoured paleta. You can get¬†yours at¬†the¬†restaurant’s St. John location from July 27 to 29, 2018. Because the only way to make a summer cocktail even better is to turn it into a frozen treat.
