Today is National Tequila day! For tequila connoisseurs (such as myself) everyday is national tequila day. But today allows for me to share my favorite tequila infused cocktail with you. I’ve been making Palomas for years, so trust when I say this summer cocktail is so simple to make. You will look like a seasoned mixologist. Yes Mixology is a thing. But that’s another blog post. Let’s focus on the important task at hand….the crafting of this zesty bad-ass drink. I have provided the recipe below but feel free to edit the recipe to reflect your own personal taste. Drink smart and drink responsibly! Cheers!

Paloma cocktail:

1/4 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice

1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice

1/4 cup blanco tequila, brand of your choice, I use Don Julio

Top with 1/4 cup club soda. An alternative to keep the zest longer, try grapefruit soda

Garnish with choice of 1 lime wedge or a peel from a grapefruit. For fun sprinkle a little lavender
