Diddy Launches CÎROC White Grape

In honor of his upcoming golden 50th, Diddy is launching a new, limited edition, flavored vodka on National Vodka Day (Oct 4th) that exudes “celebration”.  The artist and mogul – whose real name is Sean “Diddy” Combs – will reach the milestone age on November 4th, and to mark both the beginning of his birthday festivities and National Vodka Day on Friday (10.04.19), Diddy is launching CÎROC White Grape.  Diddy first teased the existence of the new flavor in September and he is now preparing to release the liquid into the market.

One of Diddy’s favorite cocktails made with the new flavor -which is five times distilled from French grapes – is the decadent White Grape 75, which is served in a champagne flute and comprised of 1.5oz CÎROC White Grape, 4oz Champagne, one sugar cube and two dashes of Peychaud or Angostura bitters.

Meanwhile, Diddy has not yet revealed plans for his 50th birthday celebrations but he will need to put together a huge bash in order to surpass his 49th birthday party.  Last year, to mark his big day, the star kicked off proceedings with a skydive which saw him land in the backyard of the Playboy Mansion in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles.  He continued the celebrations with a lavish party in Los Angeles, which was attended by a host of stars including Snoop DoggLL Cool J, Karrueche Tran, Tracee Ellis Ross, UsherWiz Khalifa and Jeezy.
