It’s Friday and time for another cocktail recipe celebrating Sippin Pretty Friyay!
Today I am featuring a Spicy Garden Paloma.
It’s the perfect cocktail for these dog days of summer (what does that even mean?!?).
I’ll be looking that saying up later.
But first, today’s cocktail features spicy jalapeno pepper for kick and grapefruit for a refreshing finish and lime juice for a tartness that rounds everything out.
Let’s get started.
2 oz tequila
1 oz fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice
3/4 oz jalapeno-agave syrup (below)
1/2 oz lime juice
One dash of Celery Bitters
6 jalapenos, sliced
16 oz of water
16 oz of agave nectar
Add hot water to jalapenos and let steep for 3 minutes.
Pour in agave nectar and stir.
Lastly, shake all ingredients and strain into Tom Collins glasses.
Top with a pinch of salt.
Add a dash or two of celery bitters to taste.
Garnish with jalapeno or lime wedge.
A Spicy Garden Paloma.
This is light and refreshing and perfect for cocktails on the porch.
I love the pretty pink color.
