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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
