Paloma Slush

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!
