Spring Break Paloma

Spring break begins soon.

It's considered a rite of passage for many college & high school students.

One destination for spring breakers is Mexico.

If you can't get away for spring break this year, you can still enjoy this Mexican cocktail.

I've used bottled grapefruit juice, but you can use fresh grapefruit juice if desired.

4 - 6 oz. tequila 
4 c. prepared grapefruit juice
1 oz. triple sec
1 liter bottle (32 oz. approx.) club soda 
1 T. (enough to coat rims of glasses) Salt
Orange food coloring

In the bottom of a clean pitcher, place ice. 

Combine grapefruit juice, tequila and triple sec over the ice.

Pour club soda into pitcher.

Stir to mix with a wooden spoon and place into refrigerator until ready to serve.

Just before serving:

Pour salt into a small clean bowl.

Add one to two drops of food coloring, stir to mix.

Sprinkle salt onto a clean plate.

Wet the rims of 4 clean glasses with a clean napkin.

Place glasses rim side down on plate with the salt to coat.

Place glasses in freezer to chill for a few minutes.

Remove glasses from freezer and pour cocktail into glasses.

Serves 4.
