With the 4th of July coming up on Monday and the Summer cleanse behind us, we’re in 80:20 summer mode!
Who’s ready for a refreshing and delicious drink?!
Be sure to check out La Paloma Rosa recipe below.
Known as one of Mexico’s most popular cocktails, La Paloma is a perfect combination of sweet and tart with grapefruit, lime, and a pinch of salt. We’ve given this a Conscious Cleanse 80:20 spin by adding one of our favorite sugar-free sweeteners, Lakanto, plus a touch of mint.
For more deliciously conscious spirits, be sure to check out our library of 80:20 Conscious Cocktails HERE.
Until next time, have a safe and healthy 4th of July.
La Paloma Rosa
- 1 cup fresh grapefruit juice
- 1 cup organic blanco tequila
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- 1 ½ TB. Lakanto
- Handful of fresh mint, crushed
- Pink Himalayan sea salt
- Ice cubes
- 1 cup club soda
In a cocktail shaker (or quart-sized mason jar) combine the grapefruit juice, tequila, lime juice, and Lakanto. Crush the mint leaves in your hands releasing the essential oils while keeping them whole. Add the mint leaves to the same container. Stir, wait five minutes, and stir again. To prepare each drink, run a lime wedge along the edge of half of each glass, and dip rim in salt. Pour ½ cup of the grapefruit mixture into each glass filled with ice. Top off with about ¼ cup of club soda. Garnish with any extra mint you may have. ¡Salud amigos!
