Perrier and Cocktails [+ Giveaway]

perrier flavors

A staple to any home bar is club soda, and I find myself running out of it more often than anything. There are several “fizzy waters” that you can outfit your bar with – club soda, seltzer, or mineral water – are they all the same and will they all work in cocktails? I’ve found the answer to be yes, but The Kitchn will give you the science behind it all. My short answer? Mineral water can be more flavorful and is more natural. That brings us to the mother of all mineral water: Perrier.

    The Mojito, definitely! I think all of these cocktails would be great, but anything with fresh mint has my vote. There’s something about fizz and mint that are a perfect marriage! And Perrier is definitely among the fizziest. I frequently make drinks with Topo Chico (a Mexican sparkling water found widely in South Texas) but I would be happy to replace it with Perrier.

    The Perrier Pink Grapefruit is OUT OF THIS WORLD, so the Greyhound would be a close second for me 🙂

    Definitely the Cape Perrier!!! Vodka & cranberry is a nightclub staple and the thought of adding a splash of fizz sounds great!

    Honestly, I would try them all. However, if I had to choose I would go with the Perrier Greyhound. Sounds too refreshing to pass up.

    My heart goes out to Tom Collins for sure! It is the first drink my dad introduced me too. I’m a fan of Tom Collins!!!!
