Christmas is only 4 days away and I finally got around to getting my bar cart all ready! While it may not ‘scream’ holiday- I’ve got all the essentials to make it a perfect Christmas… just with a more feminine flair! I, of course, had to add LaCroix to my cart, because it’s my boyfriend and I’s drink of choice. This LaCroix Holiday Variety Pack is the perfect gift for anyone on your list as you can get it at any Mariano’s location and it’s only $7.50!! The pack comes with my personal favorites- Cran-Raspberry, Berry and Tangerine. We love to add a splash of it to our vodka with a squeeze of lemon or lime, for the perfect cocktail. I went a little crazy and bought two packs for my boyfriend for Christmas, and I know this will be his favorite gift!
I am getting so excited for Christmas and can’t wait to have my girls over for a pre-Christmas celebration and exchange gifts. Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year… let’s just hope it snows this year!!
Enjoy some of my favorite LaCroix Cocktail Recipes!
Tequila + Tangerine
.75 ounce grapefruit juice
.75 ounce sweet Italian vermouth (like Cocchi di Torino)
1 ounce tequila blanco
Combine grapefruit juice, vermouth, and tequila in a tall glass over ice. Add Tangerine LaCroix to fill. Pop in a straw and enjoy.
1 handful fresh mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.)
½ ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and chopped into 1-inch cubes
3.5 ounces fortified wine or 2 ounces gin/spirit of your choice
Mint sprig for garnish (optional)
Muddle the fruit delicately in a heavy-bottomed pint glass, just enough to release their own juices. Add liquor to the glass and stir to combine. Fill pint glass with the ice, top with Berry LaCroix, and garnish with a sprig of mint, if using.
Simple red wine spritzer
1.5 ounces light- or medium-bodied red table wine
4.5 ounces Berry LaCroix
3-4 berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, or a mix) to garnish
Fill a standard white wine glass with ice. Add red wine and top with LaCroix. Stir gently and garnish with berries.
