A while back I came across a gorgeous drink called the Paloma cocktail, it drew my attention because it was made with tequila. Come to find out it is the most popular drink in Mexico. I had to give it a try, of course I had to put my own spin on it by tossing in a few strawberries. It made for a beautiful cocktail that I can now call my new favorite.
The key to a great cocktail is quality ingredients. I was lucky enough to be on the receiving end of a bottle of Casa Noble Tequila and some of Hepp’s Black Lava Salt ,to make a cocktail in honor of Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, a toast in honor of those who have passed away.
- 3 oz Casa Noble Tequila
- 2 oz fresh grapefruit juice
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- ½ cup sliced strawberries
- 6 oz lemon-lime soda
