Cool down these final days of summer with a Paloma Slush.
The end of summer in Michigan has been hot. So why not beat the heat with an icy adult beverage? I cannot think of a better way.
A Paloma is a tequila based cocktail mixed with tart grapefruit juice and lime. Freeze some grapefruit juice into cubes and pureeing everything in a blender for a slushy version of the classic cocktail. Easy and delicious!
Summer in a glass.
To Make This Paloma Slush You Will Need:
- grapefruit juice
- grapefruit (cold pressed or freshly squeezed)
- simple syrup
- lime juice
Fill an ice cube tray or two with grapefruit juice and freeze for a few hours or over night.
When you’re ready to make the cocktails, start by adding a little salt to a shallow dish. For this drink, I’m using fine pink Himalayan salt, however use what you have.
Rim your glasses with a wedge of grapefruit or lime.
Dip in the salt.
Repeat with remaining glasses.
In your blender pour 1 cup grapefruit juice. Fresh squeezed, cold pressed… whichever.
Then add 1/2 to 3/4 cup tequila (depending how strong you want it), 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice and 1/2 cup simple syrup. Add 3 to 4 heaping cups of grapefruit juice ice cubes.
And puree until slushy. If too thin add more ice. However if you find it too icy, add a splash of grapfruit juice until the mixture is slushy and pourable.
Pour into glasses.
Sip. And repeat.
Even if they melt a little, they’re still delicious!
