Timekiller (Quick Pineapple Rum-LaCroix Cocktail) Recipe

Vicky Wasik

Are you ready for the beach? This crazy-easy mixed drink from Claire Sprouse of Tin Roof Drink Community will take you there, no cocktail shaker or blender required.

It gets a tropical boost from coconut-flavored LaCroix sparkling water, mixed with Plantation Pineapple Rum, which was developed with the help of famed cocktail historian David Wondrich. To fill in the cocktail's fruity core, Sprouse calls for Lo-Fi Sweet Vermouth, a gently sweet and lightly bitter concoction made with white wine, sherry, and grape spirits infused with rhubarb, anise, cocoa, vanilla, gentian, and coconut. If you can't find it, you can still make a delicious drink by subbing in slightly sweet Dolin Blanc Vermouth.
