A Mexican staple with Italian flare
It turns out the Paloma, not the Margarita, is Mexico's most beloved cocktail. I wasn't a believer until I had one, now there's no going back.
The combination of fresh grapefruit juice, lime juice, simple, tequila and club soda is downright amazing. I like to add a half ounce of mezcal for a smoky layer as well. So how do you make this better? Add some Italian amaro, tea and champagne of course.
- 1.25 oz. Blanco Tequila
- .5 oz. Mezcal
- 3 oz. The Owl's Brew Grapefruit Collins
- .25 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
- .5 oz. Aperol
Shake with ice, pour into Collins glass and top with champagne. Garnish with a grapefruit peel.
