SO, it has been a tough week around here and it is only Tuesday! My office is in the process of moving and we have a ton of activities going on at home. I’m powering through and looking forward to the weekend when I can sit back and enjoy a blood orange paloma on the deck.
A paloma is a tequila based drink that is usually mixed with a combination of grapefruit juice and club soda or a grapefruit flavored soda like Fresca. You serve it over ice with a lime wedge. I am in love with blood orange soda so I delicided to substitute it for the grapefruit and this amazingly refreshing cocktail was born.
Blood Orange Paloma Ingredients:
1/2 cup blood orange soda
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp agave syrup
1/4 cup tequila
Lime wedge for garnish
Let’s Make It:
1) Combine lime juice, agave syrup and tequila in a glass. Stir well until combined. Add ice and top with blood orange soda. Serve with lime wedge.
You could definitely salt or sugar the rim of the glass if you want. I prefer mine with just a lime wedge. One thing is for certain: this is going to replace a margarita as your new favorite Mexican cocktail!
