One spicy paloma at a time that is! We served up these cocktails at a recent patio party since they’re equal parts pretty + delicious. Not only were they a big hit, but they were perfect for serving big batch style. Simply set the garnishes on the side so guests can serve themselves a five star cocktail with ease!
- 1 oz. of tequila
- 3 oz. of fresh grapefruit juice, strained
- 1 lime (you’ll only need a squeeze!)
- Splash of grapefruit soda water (plain works fine)
- 1 jalapeño slice and chili, sugar, and sea salt mixture for garnishing
If you’re dressing up your rim, run a lime wedge across the top of your glass and dip it into the chili, sugar, and sea salt mixture before assembling your cocktail.
Next, combine the tequila, grapefruit juice, soda water, and squeeze of lime juice over ice in a cocktail glass, shake, and then strain and pour over ice into your dress glass.
If you want an extra spicy version, you can top with a jalapeño slice with the membrane still intact, or remove the seeds and membrane for a mild (and cute!) garnish on top.
