The secret is out – I love cocktails! Anyone that follows my Instagram page would be well aware of this. Deliciously created with indulgent ingredients that at their best are made with theatre and flair – it’s not just a drink, it’s an experience!
I love having them made for me at cocktail bars and being dazzled by the bar tenders talent and skill but sometimes it’s nice to create them in the comfort of your own home it’s convenient and cost effective but still a little decadent!
This is my absolute favourite cocktail recipe commonly known as a Paloma – pretty and simple, fresh and tasty, a little sweet and a little sour – perfect! Make it in bulk or make individual serves it’s easy and delicious either way.
120ml Pink Grapefruit Juice
Juice of half a lime
Top with Grapefruit mineral water or soda water
Fill glass with ice, add tequila, add pink grapefruit juice, top with mineral water and stir. Add lime juice to taste, stir and serve.
- Rim the glass with salt – place salt on a saucer and simply rub the glass with lime and dip into the salt.
- Some people like a sweeter cocktail so you can add sugar syrup (boiled water and sugar) if you like to sweeten it up.
- Make the recipe in bulk and serve in a jug or drink dispenser
- Garnish with slices of lime or wedges
