Who better to help plan a holiday drink menu than a man whose music is featured on countless party playlists?
“I’m what you call a mixologist,” Diddy tells PEOPLE with a smile. “I haven’t really gotten certified, but I’ve been doing it for years. I started with Kool-Aid and I graduated to alcohol.”
As the celebrity endorser for Cîroc vodka, the Grammy winner and entrepreneur recommends using a light hand while pouring your cocktail, “so it’s smooth and not too strong,” he says. That way, “You can have a couple.” He recommends tweaking his signature cocktail, The Diddy (Cîroc and lemonade) by adding cranberry juice, as well as the following drink – his favorite for the holidays. Cheers! – Rennie Dyball
Diddy’s Holiday Cocktail
1.5 oz. Cîroc vodka
3 oz. Ocean Spray White Cranberry & Peach Juice drink
