Rhubarb Palomas

 Happy Friday/Cinco de Mayo! This week I focused on getting back into the kitchen and back to the blog. As much as I’ve been itching to make macarons, I thought I’d finish off the week with a good cocktail! I’m sure I’m not the only one that could use one! Plus today’s holiday gave me the perfect excuse to work on a new bevy recipe since it’s been a while.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a gal that loves a good margarita, but I do like to switch things up, so today I have Palomas for you instead.

Palomas are traditionally made with grapefruit soda, tequila and lime, and served on the rocks. As delicious as they are, I just so happened to make a rhubarb simple syrup earlier in the week, that ended up pairing beautifully with flavors of the Palomas.

Since I used fresh squeezed grapefruit juice instead of soda in the cocktail, the rhubarb simple syrup was a welcomed addition.

The subtle sweetness balanced out the tangy flavors perfectly.

 Now can we talk about the rhubarb ribbons for a minute?

I’ve been obsessed with using rhubarb for garnishes lately, and for good reason.

They almost remind me of a rose floating a top the Palomas.

I already have plans to enjoy a few of these babes while soaking up the sunshine on my back patio. Be sure to bookmark or pin the recipe so you can do the same! The pretty pink hue makes them a lovely cocktail option for spring and summer parties as well.

  1. Ok Brandi you made a believer out of me with this poloma. I love the flavor of rhubarb it's so distinct and flavorful. I can only imagine how delicious paired with the brightness of grapefruit & limes (two of my favorites flavors) now there's 3 reasons to sip on this Poloma (or chug-haha) You make your drinks look as lovely as I know they taste. beautiful presentation.
    1. Haha! Chugging is more like it. We made so many last weekend and they were so refreshing! I have a feeling we'll be making repeats soon! I just received a bunch more rhubarb from a friend. Yay! Thanks for the sweet words. xo
  2. YUMMY! I have to admit that I am not very adventurous when it comes to cocktails but I love the sound of your poloma! That combination of rhubarb with the tangy lime and grapefruit sounds really interesting. I am definitely intrigued. You have the most amazing presentation too, I would feel a little bit guilty to drink such a beautiful drink, but I'd do it! Hehe! I'll have to give these a try with my hubby next time we have a little gathering xx
    1. Thanks Jessica! One of my favorite things to make during spring and summer is simple syrup. It's perfect for quick cocktails and goes with just about any spirit. Plus it's an easy way to experiment with cocktails without getting too fancy :) If you like grapefruit and rhubarb this one's worth trying. xo
