SPICY PALOMA

WELCOME TO DAY 4 OF COCKTAIL WEEK!


Grapefruit, lime, tequila (or mezcal) and jalapeño is an excellent combination if you ask me.

Big tequila girl here, until I found mezcal that is. 😉

The two can be used interchangeably here. Use whatever you have on your bar cart. They both work.


This recipe is so simple, packs a punch and if you are like me..you will feel it.

Jalapeño is optional of course, but like why wouldn't you?! 🤪


WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • Cocktail shaker

  • Cocktail glasses

  • Citrus juicer

FOR INGREDIENTS

  • Tequila or mezcal

  • Lime juice - fresh squeezed

  • Grapefruit juice - fresh squeezed

  • Splash of sparkling water - or my favorite grapefruit kombucha

  • Jalapeño - sliced, optional

  • Simple syrup - optional

Like I said, easy peasy lime and grapefruit squeezy.

Combine tequila, lime and grapefruit juice in a cocktail shaker (& simple syrup, if using) and shake to chill and combine. Coat the rim of the glass in lime juice, twirl in margarita salt and top off with sparkling water or kombucha. Enjoy!
