You feel kind of high-end when you crack open a LaCroix on a casual Saturday afternoon. If it’s not the styled packaging and swirly font that says, “I’m classy, I promise” it’s the fake accent you have to put on when someone asks you what you’re drinking. These flavorful drinks are a favorite of many, BUT it seems they are missing one thing. It only makes sense, with the perfect blend of fruity goodness and fizz, to add the best third component to any great duo – booze!
Not sure where to start? Try out some of the best combos below:
Tequila & Tangerine
.75 ounce grapefruit juice
.75 ounce sweet Italian vermouth
1 ounce tequila blance
Mix all ingredients over ice and drink!
1 handful fresh mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.)
1/2 ripe mango (peeled and chopped into cubes)
3.5 ounces fortified wine OR 2 ounces gin/spirit of your choice
Mint for garnish
Muddle fruit in a heavy-bottomed pint glass to release juices. Add liquor, Berry LaCroix and ice. Stir mixture to combine and garnish with a sprig of mint.
