Paloma

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz Premium Tequila

  • 5 oz Q Grapefruit

  • Two lime wedges

Variations

To create a spicy salt rim, mix salt and jalapeno and spread out on a plate. Run a lime along the rim of a highball, then dip the rim into the salt mixture . Try mezcal rather than tequila for a smokier drink. A tiny splash of agave is a fun way to add some sweetness if preferred.

Method

Fill a highball glass with ice. Pour in the tequila and squeeze in a lime. Then pour in the Q Grapefruit. Gently stir and garnish with a lime.

    Method

    Fill a highball glass or copper mug with ice. Pour in the vodka and squeeze in the lime, leaving the lime shell in the glass. Then pour in the Q Ginger Beer, and gently stir.

    Variations

    Because Q Ginger Beer is less sweet than other ginger beers, it leaves more room to add a special flair. Try adding fresh juice (watermelon is great!) or your favorite liqueur to sweeten it up and add a new flavor.
