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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
