The New Cocktail for Mexican Weddings

Destination Weddings in Mexico are lovely because we have all of the mexican colors, flavors and traditions to incorporate elements and set the mood for a unique wedding.

For many years the Margarita prepared with Tequila has been the representative cocktail of a mexican destination wedding. Now the time to innovate and get creative has come and we discover a new rising cocktail to give an amazing first impression at your reception.

We are talking about the “Paloma” it’s a less dense cocktail than the margarita and it gives you plenty of room to play and create your own signature cocktail. You can prepare it with Tequila or Mezcal (trendiest mexican liquor at the moment).

Here is the recipe to make a rocking Paloma:

Pour some kosher salt on a plate. Rub half of rim of a highball glass with a grapefruit wedge; dip rim of glass in salt. Combine 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, and 1 teaspoon sugar in glass; stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in 1/4 cup mescal or tequila, add ice, and top off with 1/4 cup club soda. Garnish with grapefruit wedge.
