Blood Orange Pitcher Paloma with Spicy Orange Salt Rim

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 12 servings

Fresh grapefruit and lime juice, mixed with a high-quality tequila, make this Blood Orange Pitcher Paloma a timeless favorite.

The Paloma is a refreshing, tequila-based cocktail loaded with gorgeous, fresh fruit juice.  It has an amazing sweet flavor, with just the right amount of tart and citrus notes. Fresh grapefruit and lime juice, mixed with a high-quality tequila make this cocktail a timeless favorite.  Top these babies off with some fizzy grapefruit soda, and you have a drink that will leave your guests wanting more.

During the development of Latin Twist, my co-author and I enjoyed many Palomas while we drafted, edited and planned. In our book Latin Twist, you will find a mezcal Paloma made with smoky mezcal and fresh grapefruit. Today I want to share with you a vibrant pitcher Paloma featuring Private Selection Blood Orange cocktail mix that is perfect for entertaining as you can whip it up in no time. The spicy orange salt rim pairs flawlessly with the blood orange flavor and compliments the tequila Blanco nicely.

Made with a blend of blood orange juice, lemon juice and agave syrup, the Private Selection Blood Orange cocktail mix from Kroger it is the perfect addition to your pantry. I plan to keep my pantry stocked with plenty for impromptu entertaining, Sunday brunch and last minute hostess gifts. Wrapped in a festive bag along with a tiny jar of my spicy orange salt rim, it makes for a wonderfully boozy gift.

¡Salud!
