French Vanilla Ciroc Coquito

Today, we have a brilliant French Vanilla Ciroc Coquito. It's a twist on a regular Coquito that's typically made with white rum. There are a few modifications I made that kinda dumbs down the sweetness, but keeps it flavorful with coconut cream. Also, the strength is great. Here's the breakdown of the drink.

1.5 oz French Vanilla Ciroc
1 oz Milk
1/2 oz Coconut Cream
Top with Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and Ginger (Optional)

This is a very tasty drink with a bit of kick. If you don't like to eat dessert, this is a perfect after dinner drink that will get your evening started.

A Great Cocktail Session Using SoFlo Studio

When it comes to creating the perfect video, SoFlo Studio can't be beat. My friends and I did a day shoot for a particular set of cocktails they wanted to feature for their Labor Day weekend special. It's safe to say that the service was simply top-notch. We came in there without any idea of what cameras were available, but wanted some specific shots for the way the video setups were going look like at the end.

First of all, they had a full-on video production studio to help set up the perfect place for making the different Labor Day weekend libations. We decided to make the film studio rental for about 3 hours. This way, we had some time to get at least a few cocktails done and still have some time to edit. We decided to go with a padded room set to help get some nice green screen in the background to introduce the video with our logo. Afterwards, we used he actual hotel lobby set with our own kind of bar look to help make it look classy.

Overall, I must say it was well worth the effort. They are very professional and have a good set of choices available to shoot action sequences for an independent film or just create a good video for a YouTube channel. We're definitely looking forward to working with them in the future!

This is a very interesting video. When you're out there on a budget, this is something to consider temporarily. However, always go with the mid-range option to be on the safe side.
