Serrano-Spiced Paloma Mixed Drink

Pleased Friday, good friends. I’m buzzing with concepts after breakfast (and completely excessive coffee) with the great blog writers behind Gim me Some Oven and Minimalist Baker. Socializing with blog site good friends constantly makes this gig appear somewhat less unreasonable.

An example of such absurdity occurred the other day afternoon I snapped these pictures throughout uncommon minutes of sunlight while cursing the dark clouds rolling overhead. It was a video game of feline and mouse, and the winner made a melting mixed drink.

I glanced through my mixed drink choice a few days ago and recognized that the older beverages aren’t precisely representative of the mixed drinks I purchase nowadays. I typically alternate in between light, carbonated, clinky beverages (bourbon and soda with great deals of lemon, for instance) and stupid-expensive, trendy little numbers (think it or not, this Midwestern city provides some excellent mixed drinks). I’m a sucker for tasty accents like peppers or olives and foreign liqueurs that I can’t pronounce. How else am I going to validate a 12-dollar beverage, if it does not include components that I do not have at house?

This grapefruit mixed drink is exactly my sort of beverage, and thankfully, it does not cost an arm and a leg to make in the house. It has some kick to it thanks to tequila and Serrano pepper, however bittersweet grapefruit juice and a dash of agave nectar complete the tastes well. I have actually discovered through experimentation with my pineapple serrano mixed drink that muddling a small round of pepper into the beverage provides simply as much taste as more lengthy techniques of instilling liquor/simple syrup with peppers. If you’re delicate to spice, you can utilize the smallest sliver of pepper or omit it completely.

Palomas are generally made with grapefruit soda, however I chose to keep it light and revitalizing with a mix of fresh juice and soda water. Really, I occurred to have grapefruit-flavored soda water in my refrigerator (the pamplemousse taste by Lacroix), so I grabbed that rather of plain soda water. It’ll be fantastic with unflavored soda water, too, though. I believe you’ll like it in either case.

Fresh, hot paloma mixed drink made with grapefruit juice and tequila. A lot of paloma mixed drink dishes require grapefruit soda, however I lightened this one up with soda water and agave nectar.
