It is Father's Day and 82 degrees. We are celebrating the day with ice cold paloma slushies courtesy of Julia Turshen's Small Victories. Truly, if I could only keep one cookbook in my collection, it would be this one. If you don't already have it, consider adding it to yours.
I have a feeling that this is going to be our 2018 summer cocktail...
PALOMA SLUSHIES (adapted slightly from Julia Turshen's Small Victories)
Juice of 2 limes
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 cup grapefruit juice (this is a great one)
1/2 cup mezcal (or tequila)
1/4 tsp kosher salt
2 cups (360 g) ice cubes
Put the lime juice, honey, grapefruit juice, mezcal, salt and ice in a high speed blender; blend until the ice its totally blitzed and the mixture is very smooth.
Pour into two glasses and serve immediately.
