Manly COTM – White Claw Summer Spiked Seltzers

LaCroix has taken over as my mixer of choice recently. The zero calorie factor is ideal and goes hand in hand with preventing a sugary hangover. Shares of its parent company, National Beverage Corp., experienced more growth than Netflix and Tesla combined this year.

If Seltzer’s surge in the market wasn’t already evident enough, companies like White Claw are now making spiked seltzers in a can. Having everything pre-mixed is perfect if you’re headed out and about, but in case you have the time to put a little something extra together, here are some of our favorite recipes:

Pimms Cup

Pimms Cup is a staple of British summer that can typically be found off the courts of Wimbledon. While it’s usually made with ginger ale, switching over to seltzer is a great way to cut out extra sugar. Even if you don’t have a picnic in the English countryside to attend, this is a great cocktail to accompany a day at the grill.

Ingredients (6-8 servings)

Pimms No. 1 Cup
One orange
Three limes
One lemon
One cucumber
Mint leaves
One White Claw Lime
One White Claw Raspberry

Instructions

In a pitcher, mix the Pimms, mint and citrus slices together while making sure to push the mint down to the bottom.  Let it sit for about 10 minutes in the fridge then add the White Claw Lime and stir.  Add ice to a glass, stand a cucumber wedge up and pour away.

 

Cherry NiCola

NiCola LaCroix and White Claw Black Cherry take all the flavors of black cherry Coke into account without the negatives ingredients.  If you really want to go for the cherry vodka you can, but I think the two seltzers’ flavor is ideal with the standard stuff.  Weigh the seltzers out equally and add an extra shot of vodka if you see fit.

Ingredients

NiCola LaCroix
Black Cherry White Claw
Vodka

 

Bubbling Angel

Throwing some rosé in with your White Claw Grapefruit is a solid option for dinners that involve seafood and citrus.  Top it off with the rind of the grapefruit and you’re all set.  My go to for rosé is Whispering Angel, but it will work well with drier varieties.

Ingredients

White Claw Grapefruit
Grapefruit rind
Rosé of your choice
