Today’s libation is a take on the ever-popular Paloma cocktail, but it was inspired by a friend on the Twitterwebs, @velvetsugar76. She has the most awesome monikers. I featured a cocktail I made up in her honor over at Sithy Things, but as most people who concoct new libations do, I had leftover booze and went further making up another cocktail.
- 2 oz. grapefruit juice (ruby red is my choice)
- 3/4 oz. silver tequila
- 3/4 oz. simple syrup
- 2 oz. prosecco
Pour the first three ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a highball with ice (or glass of choice). Pour the prosecco into glass and stir gently to combine.
I found the cocktail to be on the sweet side, so omit the simple syrup if you prefer. Best to enjoy in a leisurely manner. It made me so woozy, I had to wait to sober up enough to write the Sithy post. 😀
