Did someone say Spicy Paloma??
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)
2 tablespoons of Simple Syrup
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!
Let me know if you tried these and loved them! I think I'm going to start a drink series here on the blog and share different drink recipes.
