Don Julio “Pretty n’ Pink” Palomas

Don Julio "Pretty n' Pink" Palomas

On the hunt for a pink beverage to serve at an upcoming bachelorette, bridal shower, or girl’s night? The “Pretty ‘n Pink” Paloma is the perfect complement to your girly decor. This concoction was created by my fabulous friend BeWellWithArielle, and they are as pretty as they are delicious and sweet. And in her classic way of adding a healthy touch, she told me to use beet juice to create a pink salted rim. [As she said "Beets are great for cleansing the liver and detoxing", which is slightly ironic when paired with a cocktail, but hey, embrace it!] Now drink up!

Ingredients {makes 1 cocktail}

  • 2 oz Don Julio Reposado Tequila
  • 3 oz Organic Red Grapefruit Juice
  • 3 oz Sparkling water
  • 1/2 Lime juiced, the second half sliced for garnish
  • Beet juice (optional for rim)
  • Pink Himalayan Salt, fine (optional for rim)

Instructions:

  1. Slice your limes in half. Place half aside for squeezing lime juice and take the remaining halves and create lime wedges to adorn the rims of your glasses. Place to the side.
  2. For pretty pink salted rim: Boil beets to make a pink beet juice. Place this water in a bowl. In a separate bowl, sprinkle a thin layer of  Himalayan Salt. Take your cocktail glasses and dip the rim of each glass in the beet juice, then quickly follow with a dip in the Himalayan salt.
  3. Now for the cocktail, take your glasses and add 2 large ice cubes, grapefruit juice, tequila, then top off with sparkling water and fresh squeezed lime juice.
  4. Finish off by added a lime wedge to the rim. Serve on a pretty white tray!
