So I ventured out to try something a bit different. I made some palomas the other day and thought they were great but decided to adjust the recipe a bit with other fruits that were in season....
Strawberry Paloma: this was my favorite...
1.5 oz of Blanco Tequila
Juice from 2 Mexican Key Limes
One large or 2 small strawberrys thinly sliced
(Stir all the above and let this mixture sit anywhere from 30 minutes - 3 hours in fridge so the strawberry flavor starts to come out; any longer and its too much...)
Pour contents into cup of ice; it should fill about half a small glass
Top with Squirt and garnish with a lime wedge and strawberry slices on a wooden stick or the edge of the glass.
I will try to take a picture later. It wasnt too sweet because the fruits contained natural sugars, the squirt is very refreshing on a summer day and with the sliced strawberrys in the drink, it comes out just as pretty as it tastes...a pale pink color with little carbon bubbles floating around the fruit....
You can also rim the edge with salt or sugar but I dont prefer either....
I made an entire pitchers worth for my birthday with:
15 Oz's of Blanco Tequila
10-12 Fresh Sliced Strawberrys
12-15 Squeezed Mexican Key Limes
I let it sit one hour and to serve just pour that and top with squirt in an ice filled glass.
Tequila Don Valente....ask for it.
