Paloma Rose

Paloma Rose cocktail with tequila, grapefruit juice, rose syrup, sparkling water, and lime

Rose has a natural affinity for grapefruit, and it works beautifully in this riff on a classic Paloma.

The Paloma Rose is an invention of the Portland Syrups company, and their Rose Cordial syrup is indeed excellent in this recipe. Their syrups are known for being lower in sugar than other brands, so if you use a different syrup, you may want to use a little less than what’s called for here.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake the rose syrup, grapefruit juice, and tequila with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with sparkling water. Squeeze the lime wedge over the drink and drop it in as a garnish.

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
