LaCroix Cocktail

LaCroix Cocktail with passionfruit LaCroix, overproof rum, maraschino, lime juice, and simple syrup

The hipster singularity has surely come to pass, now that some of the world’s best-respected mixologists are turning to LaCroix as a cocktail ingredient. But when the quotidian can finds its way into a Jane Danger recipe, you know it’s one for the ages.

Danger makes use of the “dressed can” technique, pouring out a bit of the flavored sparkling water and packing the can full of hi-octane ingredients, turning it into an inspired riff on a long Daiquiri, or a Demerara Dry Float.

Danger’s original LaCroix Cocktail recipe called for sparkling water with a passionfruit flavor. You can use the same flavor from other brands, or even mix it up – it’s delicious with lime or cherry sparkling water, too.

Ingredients

Instructions

Pour out 2.5 ounces (75 mL) of the sparkling water, and add the remaining ingredients to the can (a funnel helps). Stir gently, and then garnish with a lime wheel, a fat sprig of mint, and dust over everything with some freshly-ground nutmeg.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
