Obsessed with LaCroix? Congratulations, join the club. If you like cocktails and have yet to try LaCroix mixed with something else, allow this post to inspire you to change that. Even if you don’t love the sensationally popular sparkling water, you might really enjoy these LaCroix cocktails.
Apricot Aperol spritz
A pleasant summer afternoon or evening drink, the Aperol spritz is a smooth, light Italian cocktail that has only recently become popular in the United States. The classic recipe calls for one part Aperol, 3 parts sparkling wine, a dash of club soda, and a grapefruit or orange peel for garnish. For a LaCroix-ed version, substitute Apricot LaCroix for club soda.
Blackberry Cucumber Mojito
There are several different mojitos you can make using flavored sparkling water in place of plain old soda water. In fact, just about any of them would work. One of the more innovative options, perfect for summer, uses a base of blackberry cucumber LaCroix. It also calls for the light rum of choice, muddled mint and blackberries, and fresh cucumber. This low-calorie mojito first came to our attention via the Eating Bird Food blog.
Sparkling Lemon Drop
All you need to make this refreshing kicker of a drink is lemon vodka and lemon LaCroix. If you have fresh lemons on hand, pucker the drink up with a squeeze of lemon juice and a lemon wedge garnish.
Peach Pear mule
If you love Moscow mules but also like variety in the flavor of your cocktails, try this twist on the WWII-era drink. Combine two ounces of your favorite ginger beer, two ounces cognac, and four ounces peach pear LaCroix. Top off with juice from one lime wedge, and garnish with another.
Equal parts white rum, pineapple juice, and coconut LaCroix make for a slightly less sinful twist on the classic piña colada. Garnish glass with a wedge of pineapple.
Serving ceviche or rotisserie chicken for dinner? This cocktail, made with pisco, lime juice, simple syrup, and melon pomelo LaCroix, makes for a great complement. For a less acidic and more authentically Peruvian rendition, stir in an egg white.
Drink like you’re James Bond for the evening with this take on a martini that features lemon LaCroix. You’ll also need two ounces gin, an ounce of Italian apertif Cocchi Americano, and a splash of orange bitters. Thrillist recommends adding a splash of prosecco or sparkling rosé.
Fresh grapefruit juice, strained to remove pulp, is the best option for this drink. But store-bought also works. Combine three ounces with two ounces mezcal, a splash of Pamplemousse LaCroix, and jalapeño simple syrup. For an extra kick, rim cocktail glasses with salt and chili powder.
