If summer has “official” flavors, pineapple and coconut must certainly be among them. We can’t think of many summery drinks that don’t include one or both. Hence, this drink: a beautiful cocktail that expertly marries the flavors of summer. Just mix coconut LaCroix with guava juice, pineapple chunks, and coconut vodka for the perfect summer cocktail.

2. Lemon Drop Martini

Lemon LaCroix joins lemon vodka (and real lemons, too!) to form the basis for this sweet-and-sour lemon drop martini. Simply mix equal parts lemon vodka, fresh lemon juice, and lemon-flavored LaCroix to make this beautiful lemon concoction. It’s delicious, of course, and great for pretty much any occasion, from a formal summer wedding to an afternoon barbecue.

3. Grapefruit and Rosemary Margarita

There’s nothing that says you can’t enjoy this heady beverage any time of year, but it’s definitely a great refresher during the summer! The deep green rosemary pairs perfectly with the soft pink background of grapefruit LaCroix and bitters, and the taste is divine as well. To make, muddle fresh rosemary and grapefruit juice, then add 1/4 cup of pamplemousse LaCroix, a shot of vodka, and a splash of grapefruit bitters.
