#DOTW: Winter Paloma

Just as I’m watching the snow starting to fall outside my window, I’m making this cocktail dreaming of spring. I guess until it actually gets here, I’ll have to ingest the sunshine called tequila! Being that tequila is made from agave, it’s one beverage that is potentially responsible for a good mood. So here we go! Enjoy!



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Patrón Silver (or quality silver tequila of your choice)
  • 1 oz ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz club soda
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • sliced ruby red grapefruit
  • sliced lime
  • salt (optional)

Wet the rim of the glass with a slice of lime, then dip it in salt (if desired). Combine tequila, grapefruit juice and simple syrup and shake in a martini shaker with ice. Pour into a ice filled glass and top off with club soda. Garish with grapefruit and/or lime slices!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
