- 2, 1/2-inch thick grapefruit slices
- sugar, for broiling
- 1 oz light agave nectar
- 4 oz silver tequila
- 2 oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
- 3 oz club soda or sparkling water
- sparkling sugar for rim (optional)
For broiled grapefruit:
- Place grapefruit slices in a baking dish. Sprinkle with grapefruit with sugar.
- Place under broiler for 3-5 minutes or until tops are crystalized. Remove and let cool before using in cocktails.
To prepare palomas:
- Wet the rim of 2 glasses and dip in sparkling sugar (optional).
- In a shaker, combine agave, tequila, and grapefruit juice over ice. Shake well and strain into the 2 glasses.
- Top each with club soda and stir. Garnish with broiled grapefruit slices.
- Watch the grapefruit slices carefully, as they will burn easily!
- You can squeeze the grapefruit juice up to a few hours in advance. Any longer and it will lose some of its bright flavor.
- If you don't have agave nectar, you can use a basic simple syrup or a honey simple syrup.
