Hurricane La Croix

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

When we found out that La Croix made a passionfruit soda, we knew that we had to turn the bubbly water into a Hurricane. The original recipe for the New Orleans staple uses a passionfruit syrup, but when made with La Croix’s passionfruit soda instead, the classic cocktail turns from tart and strong to light, refreshingly quaffable and summery. With dark rum and mezcal at the base, it has smoky depth and rich molasses sweetness. As simple to make as it is easy to drink, this is our new go-to patio drink.
