Skinny Paloma

It’s been awhile since we did a drink recipe for the blog. We’re not professional bartenders or anything, so sometimes we feel like our drinks can be boring. But regardless of our lack-luster drink making skills, we want to keep putting up drink recipes for you all.

Britta and I are huge grapefruit fans. The name itself is perplexing to say the least, but the taste is divine. Part sweet, part tart, with a little bit of tang. What’s not to love? We especially enjoy grapefruit based cocktails since this fruit somehow manages to cut out the taste of alcohol all together. Sure, I enjoy tequila, but would I drink it on the rocks? NO WAY. The grapefruit & the lime juice in this Paloma completely cover up the tequila.

Palomas are refreshing and not overly sweet, which is why we love them. We altered a basic Paloma recipe to make it a tad healthier. We prefer to eat our calories rather than drink them. Cookies > alcohol, whose with me?! I’m done talking now, I know you want a drink.

  • 2oz silver tequila (use silver to make it healthier)

  • limes for garnish (optional)

Directions:

Are you ready? This is super simple. Mix all ingredients in the glass of your choosing and add some ice. Cheers!
