Make a spicy paloma like Crossroads Hotel

 

This magnificent cocktail of fresh pink Palomas will change the way you look at tequila. A festive drink is ideal for brunch, parties and holidays.

Ingredients:

.5oz agave syrup
.75oz lime juice
2oz Don Julio reposado
Pinch salt
2 dashes firewater bitters

Instructions:

Shake & strain into a tall/Collins glass.
Top with grapefruit soda.

Tips:

– Shake vigorously for at least 15 seconds. You want to break up the ice and mix everything thoroughly.
– Reposado means the tequila has been aged in oak (vs. blanco). This gives an added dimension to the cocktail.
– Bitters come in a wide range of flavors. Experiment with different ones to create subtle changes to your cocktail.
– Never use a pre-sweetened lime juice. The added sugar will throw off the composition of the drink. Fresh lime juice is best.
