You can definitely put a spin on this drink and make it your own! That’s one of the many things I love about this drink, which was inspired by @halfbakedharvest — this drink is also dedicated to a good friend of mine, Siobhan
This cocktail is as simple as can be. You can change the juice to whichever fruit you desire! The recipe originally calls for watermelon but sadly there wasn’t any fresh watermelon at the supermarket, so I opted for strawberries! I can also see people blending up mangoes, pineapples, or any combo of fruit, really!
Can we also talk about the Chili Lime Salt rim?! I don’t like a salted rims at ALL. But maaaannnnnn, this rim went PERFECTLY with this drink, must be the @tajinusa So that said, the cocktail is simple, but GOOD.
Here’s what you need to make your Strawberry Rosé Paloma
- 2-3 cups Cubed Strawberries (or any fruit you desire!)
- 1.5 oz Silver Tequila (of course, the go to @milagrotequila did NOT disappoint!)
- Juice from 1/2 Lime
- 3-4 oz Sparkling or Regular Rosè wine, chilled (I used @barefootwine SPARKLING Rosé)
- 1/4 cup Sparkling Water for topping
For your Chili Lime Salt
- 1/4 cup flaky sea salt
- 2 teaspoons Tajin or 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 pinch granulated sugar
- Zest from 1 lime
Now here’s how to make it…
To make the Strawberry Juice, blend 2 cups cubed Watermelon in a blender. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
To make the Chili Lime Salt. Combine all the ingredients on a shallow plate. Rim your glasses in the Chili Lime Salt.
To your cocktail glass, add 1/4 cup Strawberry Juice, the Tequila, Lime Juice, and the Rosè, gently stir to combine. Add ice, then top off with a splash of sparkling water. Garnish as desired with fruit and thyme. Enjoy!
