This hibiscus paloma cocktail is a refreshing recipe; the tart grapefruit and lime juices are well complemented by the sweet floral hibiscus simple syrup. Break out that bottle of tequila and mix up a batch of these drinks today!
Earlier this month, I made grapefruit hibiscus margaritas and I have about 10 gallons of hibiscus simple syrup and a pitcher of grapefruit juice leftover. Okay…. those amounts are grossly exaggerated.
But I did amass leftovers and I decided to turn them into my second favorite tequila based drink – the paloma.
There’s nothing like a good cocktail to take thoughts of snow and winter away.
Speaking of good cocktails, a new website based around tasty beverages was just launched: TastyBev. It is a great resource if you are looking for a new drink recipe because it has the best drink recipes from your favorite food bloggers. Including me!
I am one of the lucky founding contributors to TastyBev and I am beyond excited. If you are ever searching for one of my cocktails, you can check them all out here on my contributor page: Honey and Birch. Also, keep an eye out because I’ll be sharing cocktail-based content over there that will be exclusive to TastyBev.
If you are a food blogger, head over and start submitting your drink recipes – the submission process is one of the easiest you’ve ever seen and I’d love to see some of your drinks there.
I am a sucker for a good drink, or glass of wine, or tasty beer.
Hibiscus Paloma Cocktail
Back to this delicious cocktail. Since I had all of that leftover hibiscus syrup, I decided to substitute the paloma’s sugar with it.
And what a great decision that was.
Mr. B. was hesitant to try these hibiscus paloma cocktails because he thought their bright color meant a super fruity and sweet drink. Not the case. Instead it is lightly floral and refreshing. I can see many hibiscus paloma summer days in my future.
