My Fresh Margarita’s Cousin-


The Paloma

When I start to tire of my fresh margarita I change up my cocktail to it’s  grapefruity cousin-

The Paloma

Pour some kosher salt on a plate.  Rub half of the rim of a highball or lowball glass with a grapefruit wedge;dip rim of glass in salt.  Combine 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit jice, 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice and 1 tsp sugar or 2 tsp simple sugar in glass; if using sugar stir until dissolved.  Stir in 1/4 cup mezcal or tequila, add ice, and top off with 1/4 cup club soda.  Garnish with a grapefruit wedge.  Makes one.

I normally add more grapefruit juice and lime juice  and occasionally…a little more tequila!  Enjoy ! xo
