With warm weather just around the corner (hopefully) here is a suggestion for a refreshing cocktail from south of the border, The Paloma. It is Tequila or Mezcal Blanco, fresh Grapefruit Juice and a splash of Club Soda or Lemon/Lime Soda and garnished with a lime or grapefruit wedge. It is cool, refreshing and eminently drinkable. Try one and it will probably become your drink of choice this summer season. Also, for those who follow such things The Paloma is one of 2013 Food Trends to watch so here is your chance to be “Trendy” you wanna be “Hipsters”!!
