Recipe // the Paloma-rita for Margarita Week

A refreshing twist on a classic drink!

Happy Margarita Week, you guys! It’s my second year in a row participating in this and I couldn’t be more excited to share this recipe for the Paloma-rita. It’s sort of a mash up of two drinks I really love: a Cadillac margarita and a Paloma. Both use the refreshing, bright taste of grapefruit, but I’ve changed things up with smoky mezcal and a bit of mint for a cocktail that’s perfect for Cinco de Mayo (or really any occasion, to be honest).
