Did someone say Spicy Paloma??

Happy Soiree Bar

Happy Cinco De Mayo! 

SO I mean obviously I had to make some margaritas today!! More specifically a paloma - because it is one of my top favorite drinks! 

I love love love grapefruit... so so much. My abuela use to tell me they were her "dieta" (diet) food, and I use to steal them when I could, and smother them in sugar. 

But now I skip the sugar and just enjoy them as MY dieta food ;)

Well not only do I love them for breakfast, I love them in my dranks! bonus points that they're pink!

So today I made some for me and my neighbor (if you're following me on the gram than you know I hopped the fence to bring her some, because after all what are friends for?)

Anyway scroll down for the recipe....you're gonna love it! 

Ingredients (for two cups): 

1/4 cup of Tequila (more if you like it stronger, I won't judge)

1 grapefruit (freshly squeezed) or 1/4 cup of grapefruit juice

1/4 cup of lime juice (I used freshly squeezed)

Jalapeños 

2 tablespoons of Simple Syrup

Directions: 

Soak 2 slices of Jalapeños in the 1/4 cup of Tequila for 30 minutes

Then insert all the other ingredients in a shaker, and shake shake shake! 

Pour over ice, add some more jalapeños and sliced grapefruit for garnish and soiree!
