Ahh, LaCroix, the fizzy sparkling water that’s worked its way into our hearts and souls over the past few years becoming ubiquitous in the refrigerators of couch-surfing millennials and suburban househusbands alike. And though much can be said about its refreshing bubbles, natural fruit flavors and lack of sweeteners, what people don’t seem to realize is that those cans taking up space in the fridge are the perfect cocktail mixer.
LaCroix can add a subtle flavor to your simple spritzers and vodka sodas or jazz up your sangria with just a hint of citrus flair. But it works just as well in more complex cocktails too, bringing an effervescence that helps liven up particularly strong or sweet spirits. And because LaCroix comes in so many flavors, you can experiment with all kinds of pairings. At the end of the day, you’ll be left with a win-win: a perfectly crafted cocktail and plenty of leftover LaCroix to keep you hydrated the next day.
