Gatorade Spritz

This is our goto cocktail at home. The name is self deprecating. It’s a joke! There is no gatorade in it. I believe this is technically a variant of a Vodka Rickey, but I didn’t know that when I created this. So we call it a Gatorade spritz. It’s very refreshing on a hot day. Almost a bit too refreshing.



  1. Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a pint glass with ice.
  2. Pour in a splash of lacroix.

It should be a lemon-lime mix. So the citrus should contrast with the lacroix. i.e. If you use lime juice, use a lemon lacroix.

Notes: Adjust the simple syrup amount if you want it sweeter or less. I don’t like it sweet, but it needs some sugar to offset the citrus.
