Smoked Grapefruit Paloma

Who else loves looking up the National/World days every month? Some may find them silly, but I love a chance to justify eating copious amounts of french fries, or drinking a special drink, or even dancing like a chicken (yes, May 14th was national ‘dance like a chicken’ day).

You are probably wondering where I am going with this…May 22nd is World Paloma Day so we had to make a Smoked Grapefruit Paloma! It’s so tangy and sweet, and add in the smoke, it’s just the perfect blend! We are using our Lemon Peel smoke dust for this drink because it adds the light flavor of smoke, while still touching on the citrus flavor profile.

Celebrate responsibly and stay tuned for next week when we celebrate “National Put a Pillow on your Fridge Day” (just kidding, but seriously google it! I can’t make this stuff up!)
