Mezcal • Bitter
Extreme Pamplemousse

Let’s be honest, La Croix’s Pamplemousse is the brand’s best flavor. It’s thirst quenching, highly quaffable, bright and subtly bitter with big, juicy citrus notes. And of all the La Croix flavors, it pairs best with booze. Inspired by two of the best citrus-heavy cocktails—the classic low-ABV aperitif, the Aperol Spritz, and the grapefruit-heavy Paloma—this cocktail blends La Croix’s grapefruity masterpiece with smoky mezcal, Aperol (the yin to grapefruit’s yang), St-Germain for a kick of floral depth, fresh grapefruit and lime juice. One sip and you’ll know that this is the boozy Pamplemousse spritz La Croix lovers have been waiting for.
