Recipe by Velouria
On a family trip to Guadalajara, Mexico a few years back we often had a drink called a "Rusa", which I found out later is also known as a Paloma. We've been enjoying these for years now. They're easier to make than Margaritas but just as tasty and refreshing. We don't really use a recipe, but I found this one from Martha Stewart. We don't do the "drunken lime" floater, but it sounds like a fun idea. Enjoy!
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 1 ounce platinum tequila
- 1 (13 1/2 ounce) bottlemexican grapefruit soda (can use Squirt soda instead)
- 1 lime wedge, for garnish
- coarse salt, for rim (I like to add a pinch of salt to the drink itself, along with the lime juice)
Directions See How It's Made
- Rub rim of a highball glass with lime wedge; invert glass in a small dish of coarse salt, twisting to coat rim.
- Fill glass halfway with ice, 1 teaspoon lime juice, and 1 ounce platinum tequila, then top with Mexican grapefruit soda.
- Place cored-out lime half in drink and fill with tequila (try a reposado for added flavor).
