Paloma Cocktail

It’s Cinco de Mayo, so how about a Paloma cocktail? In Mexico, Palomas are usually a combination of tequila and grapefruit soda. In the US grapefruit soda is often replaced with fresh grapefruit juice either with or without club soda. 

That’s the recipe for today folks, tequila, simple syrup, grapefruit juice, lime juice topped with club soda. This is a very refreshing cocktail, ideally served in a champagne flute. I used stemless champagne flutes, something I like to do when serving a sparkling drink with no wine in it.

Spicy Margarita

Margaritas have become my drink of choice while socializing this summer, and I’ve developed a penchant for a slightly spicy margarita, only slightly spicy though, nothing too serious. My niece on the other hand loves them as spicy as you care to make them.  I guess it must be the age difference. Really spicy margaritas give me major heart burn. I just don’t have the constitution anymore. 

My recent “Blog Life” post lists the top six bars and restaurants of our choice where a spicy margarita, and smoky margarita can be had, so check it out. But if like me, you enjoy socializing at home you should try my recipe. It packs a big punch, so make sure to fill your glass with lots and lots of ice and sip, sip, sip!
