Ingredients to Prepare the Palomita Drink

To prepare this Palomita cocktail, you will need the following ingredients:

40 ml / 1 1/3 parts Altos Plata
20 ml / 2/3 parts Grapefruit Liquor (Pamplemousse)

Grapefruit liquor, also known as Pamplemousse, is a sweet and fruity liquor that is obtained by macerating red grapefruits in alcohol. Its name comes from the French word “pamplemousse,” which means “grapefruit.”

Fresh lemon juice provides a citrusy and acidic touch that balances the sweetness of grapefruit liquor and Altos Plata tequila.

Finally, Mumm Rosé is a rosé champagne produced in the French region of Champagne. It is characterized by its fruity flavor and pale pink color, and is obtained by blending white and red wines. Add it to the cocktail to give it a touch of elegance and sophistication.

Who Created the Palomita?

This Palomita cocktail, created by Zac Overman at L’Oursin in Seattle, Washington, is said to be equal parts paloma, margarita, and spritz. We believe it is more of a paloma, with its peculiarly floral and slightly bitter notes of grapefruit rounded up by the brightness of Altos Plata… and then the refinement of Mumm Rosé. A triumph!

Why Choose Altos Plata for Preparing the Palomita?

Altos Plata is a good option for the Palomita cocktail for several reasons. Firstly, it is a smooth and elegant tequila that is characterized by its lemon and herb flavor, making it the ideal ingredient to balance the acidic flavor of grapefruit liquor and fresh lemon juice. Additionally, Altos Plata is a high-quality tequila that will give your cocktail a touch of elegance and sophistication.

Another reason to choose Altos tequila for this cocktail is that it is produced in the Mexican state of Jalisco, where tequila originated. This will allow you to enjoy an authentic and high-quality tequila, with all the flavor and tradition of this Mexican region.
