Hey guys!

It has officially decided to be spring in Edmonton, which means we have transitioned into summer basically. It’s like that here.

But that’s not what this is about. Apparently, tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo! Well, it’s definitely the fifth of May but I mean… tomorrow is the celebration of Mexico’s independence! I feel like our once-removed southern neighbors don’t get enough shout outs for anything other than tacos (so wrong, just like how we’re more than maple syrup in Canada!), so in recognition of their day, I wanted to celebrate a little! I love when people love on Canada, I’m extremely patriotic, so being that I appreciate that so much, I love to share some love on other amazing countries!

Anyhow. Palomas. I was researching some fun drinks to make for taco night at my house, and I found palomas online but was really discouraged when I saw things like fancy grapefruit pop, simple syrup, mescal (which is hard to find here). So I decided to try to cut out the sugar and just keep it simple!

The recipe I came up with is for two drinks. You can multiply it however you like!

Party Palomas

3 ounces of tequila

4 ounces of grapefruit juice

1 tablespoon juiced lime

Club soda to fill

Ice, sliced grapefruit and lime for garnish

Start off with a jar or cocktail shaker, and about 4 cubes of ice. Pour in your grapefruit juice, tequila, lime juice and a slice of grapefruit. Shake vigorously and then split between two glasses. Fill with club soda, garnish with a grapefruit or lime slice (or both!) and enjoy.  If it’s too tart for you, add a SMALL sprinkle of regular sugar into the jar before shaking.20170427_174101
