Liquid Assets: 3 Day Vacay!

Margaritas aren’t the only cocktail featuring tequila, even though it seems that way sometimes. The classic paloma also starts with tequila, but finishes with lime juice and grapefruit soda. Matt Bettinger, one of the founders of Hank’s Downtown Dive, presents this twist on that refreshing summer cocktail.

1 3/4 ounces tequila
¼ ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce grapefruit juice
3/4 ounce agave syrup
A pinch of salt
Float of Aperol, optional

Combine all ingredients except for Aperol in a shaker with ice; shake well.

Strain the contents of the shaker over fresh ice into a glass rimmed in Tajin, a chili-lime seasoning. Garnish with a float of Aperol, if desired, and a lime wheel.
