It’s cocktail time! We had some sun this week in between the almost freezing temperatures and persistent rain and so it’s tequila time. I’m probably jumping the gun a bit here, but I feel like February is the point where you need to remind yourself that winter will end…eventually. This recipe was inspired by a super grapefruity IPA that I have not been able to find ever again, mostly because I can’t remember what its called. It’s sort of a Paloma but with out any actual fruit juice, who needs it? I did replace the grapefruit juice with beer though, you’re welcome.
Paloma Beer-garita Meet-Cute
1.5 oz. Tequila
0.5 oz. Mezcal
1 oz. Agave syrup
6 oz. Sculpine IPA (or any grapefruity IPA will do)
Place Tequila, Mezcal, agave syrup and lime juice in a shaker with ice, shake until chilled. Add beer to shaker and strain into large low ball glass or beer glass. Garnish with sour grapefruit slice, no point in adding any real fruit now.
Now repeat after me, “summer is coming, summer is coming”. Cheers!
