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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
