As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make yourself a glass or two, on us — you deserve it.
As an resurgence of brown spirits as a drink of choice, CÎROC launched CÎROC VS, a fine French brandy with Sean Combs. The new liquid offers tasting notes of fresh fruit, vanilla, and a tiny hint of French oak. Perfectly elegant straight up or on the rocks, the brandy can also be enjoyed in tropical cocktail form. Complemented with pineapple juice and maraschino, Passion No. 9 might be your new favorite.
