Spicy Grapefruit Paloma
There is something about the flavor of fresh citrus when combined with the spicy and smoky heat of chilies that is out of this world! Our Spicy Grapefruit Paloma is both very refreshing and interesting. Enjoy!
2 oz. silver tequila
1 oz. spicy syrup (recipe below)
3/4 oz. lime juice, plus lime wheels
2 oz. Grapefruit Shrub
In a glass, combine tequila, spicy syrup, and lime juice. Top with shrub and garnish with lime wheels, sage, and a dust of chili powder.
For the Mocktail:
Omit the tequila and add a splash of sparkling water instead.
For the Spicy Syrup:
In a saucepan, cover 2 jalapeno peppers and 1 1/2 dried chipotle peppers with 3 cups water, bring to a boil, and cook for 5 minutes. Add 3 cups sugar; simmer 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and store in refrigerator. (Yields about 20 drinks)
