I wonder if other people think about cocktails as often as I do. Now I know that is a pretty damning statement, but I promise I don’t have a drinking problem. I like a cocktail or a glass of wine, but usually, I’m not really thinking about drinking, I’m thinking about the flavors paired with the liquors. For example, I absolutely love how grapefruit, salt, rosemary, and tequila blend together perfectly for a refreshing, tart, herbaceous cocktail.
A Paloma is one of the most popular recipes in Mexico. This week as I was trying to decide which cocktail I wanted to make, I thought about what I was drinking last summer and this was the cocktail. We visited Playa del Carmen last September and I think I might have drunk all of the Palomas in Mexico. They didn’t use rosemary in theirs, but there is almost nothing I love more than using the herbs in my garden in my cocktails.
