All credit for this drink goes to Paul from The Cocktail Chronicles who inspired me to give it a shot. The Paloma cocktail is fairly simple; basically adding some sort of grapefruit soda to tequila and a lime. The “por Mi Amante” is the signal that a wonderful shift has occurred and that strawberry infused tequila is being used instead. Oh goodness, but this is a delightful drink.
So the batch of not-steeped-for-long-enough limoncello (see previous entry) finished and was surprisingly tasty. It was well received and is long gone at this point, although I played around and made another batch (pictured here in an old tequila bottle) which is also good. I’m holding off on a longish post as I have another variant to try, but if you’re looking for an easy to make, tasty liquor limoncello has my recommendation.
As for the tequila por mi amante, it looks and smells delicious. The smell of strawberries leaps out of the jar when I open it to peer inside, anxiously waiting out at least three weeks. I can’t wait to give it a sip!
I just started two projects: A rushed limoncello and a less rushed Tequila por Mi Amante. Both are concoctions I’ve never had the pleasure of making myself, nor even tasting for that matter. Limoncello is an Italian liquor based on, you guessed it, of lemons and sugar. Or at least that’s what I’m told. I’ve been seeing it around for a while and wanted to try it out for the fabled Fig Party we knew was coming up sometime. Unfortunately, we didn’t know quite when the party would be, and I waited until we heard, and it’s this Saturday. Decent limoncello seems to take a week minimum, often a bit longer, so we’ll see how this goes. If anyone has any fig-themed cocktail ideas, I’d love to hear them.
