Tequila and I have a love hate relationship and I think most people can agree to that. While in my earlier years, tequila was the perfect shot to take (mostly the showmanship of downing it with salt and lime) and pretending it didn’t burn , I’ve never really come to appreciate tequila until much recently.


On our trip to San Francisco, I was introduced to this wonderful drink – the Paloma and wanted to recreate it and share it with you. The Paloma is refreshing and pairs well with the Casamigos Tequila – which I have to say is the smoothest tequila I’ve ever encountered. You could sip on this tequila by itself and it’s easier to drink than other tequilas that I’ve tried. However, I love my hard liquor in cocktails and this one is quick and easy to make.
