Updated Mexican Cocktail - A New Paloma
Recipe Type: Cocktail
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 1
Makes 1, easily scalable (in fact, this would be a great cocktail to make for a large group of people – stir in a pitcher instead of shaking, making sure the honey dissolves completely into the other liquids)
  • 2 oz. reposado tequila or mezcal
  • ½ oz. lime juice
  • 2 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. honey (preferably a grassy, more vegetal honey – but any type will do)
  • Bitters, for garnish
  1. Combine the tequila, lime juice, grapefruit juice, vanilla, and honey in a cocktail shaker with a few ice cubes and shake heartily until all ingredients are combined (make sure the honey is integrated – this can take a bit of extra shaking).
  2. Strain into a cocktail glass with a few cubes of ice, and add bitters. (No need to mix in the bitters – they may float on the top, which I find quite lovely, especially if the drink has foamed a bit on top.)
