Grapefruit + Basil PalomaΒ serves 2

Juice of 2 Grapefruit – pulp included

2 ounces of Tequila

2 ounces Basil simple syrup (recipe below)

Splash of soda water

Sugar and a bit of salt for the rim

Basil Simple Syrup

1 cup coconut sugar or regular sugar

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup washed basil

For the simple syrup,

In a small pot, bring all the ingredients to a boil on medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Once cooled, pour through a sieve into a sealable jar and place in the fridge until you are ready to use it.

For the Drink,

Start by juicing the grapefruits, either straining out all of the pulp or keeping it. I kept it! Then pour all of the ingredients (apart from the soda water) as well as some ice into your cocktail shaker and shake it up. Rim two glasses with a bit of honey and dip into some sugar and salt. Then pour your drinks, topping off with a splash of soda water, and enjoy!
