The Charred Paloma Cocktail

By Warren Bobrow, Cocktail Whisperer

Lately I've been experimenting a bit more with the classics. With the sudden burst of deliciously warm weather, I've created a take off on the Paloma Cocktail. Instead of the traditional use of grapefruit soda, I've taken some lusciously aromatic and juicy grapefruit and sliced them into thick rounds. I've heated the outside grill with some hard wood charcoal and set the grapefruit rounds just off the heat. Alternatively, you can sear your grapefruit rounds in a stainless steel pan or cast iron. Don't use aluminum, it reacts to the citrus and will ruin your cocktail. You will want to make the citrus somewhat charred. What this does is bring the natural sugars out in the fruit. Sure it will be slightly bitter, but that's the point. There is plenty of time to make this cocktail sweet/sour/bitter because I'm adding a bit of simple syrup to the mix. 

This drink has got all the stuffing for a perfect mind-eraser or spirit-lifter if you wish. As with all my drinks, caution should be the starting point - but should you get too enthusiastic, remember for every drink you imbibe, please be sure to drink two glasses of water. I learned this secret (quite by accident) out in Santa Fe. If you want to remain standing, it's really important to hydrate yourself. But I digress. This twisted take off on the Paloma is delicious, thirst quenching and bold in a tall glass with hand-cut Mavea "Inspired Water" ice infused with Lemon Bitters from The Bitter Truth and grapefruit zest, finely chopped and frozen into the cubes. 

How buzzed you get is completely up to you!!


I've been completely charmed by the USDA Certified Organic Casa Noble Tequila of late. My tasting notes run the gamut from milk chocolate to spicy chilies to a bit of almond croissant! When the Casa Noble Tequila is mixed with the charred grapefruit juice, the grapefruit zest/lemon bitters ice, and the ever-marvelous Perrier Sparkling Natural Mineral Water in the lemon essence, then the twisted/charred Paloma cocktail is born!

Charred Paloma Cocktail

Will take the edge off for two.

Ingredients:
• 4 oz. Casa Noble Blanco Tequila
• 6 oz. grilled grapefruit juice (or charred if you will)
• 2 oz. simple syrup
• Mavea "Inspired Water" Filtered ice infused with grapefruit zest and The Bitter Truth Lemon Bitters to taste (You'll need to experiment a bit to find the right balance of bitter to ice.)
• An egg white
• Perrier Sparkling Natural Mineral Water (Lemon)

Preparation:
1. Fill your Boston Shaker with the infused ice to ¾.
2. Add the Casa Noble Tequila.
3. Add the charred grapefruit juice.
4. Add the simple syrup.
5. Add your egg white.
6. Shake for 15 seconds.
7. Add some more of your infused ice into an old fashioned glass.
8. Strain the Tequila mixture into the glass making a nice foamy top.
9. Finish with a grapefruit zest and a splash of the Perrier Sparkling Water for added fizzy qualities.
10. Add a couple drops of the The Bitter Truth Lemon Bitters to finish if desired. 

A perfectly refreshing springtime drink! Danger Level 5 out of 5!

Cheers from DrinkUpNY!
