The 3 Palomas

The first is inspired in the distinctively citrusy and floral flavor of yuzu. The second reminds the Hemingway Daiquiri. And the third is grown-up version of a crafted Paloma. You cannot discover your favorite until you prepare them, taste them and pay tribute on May 22nd: World Paloma Day!

This paloma was created by the talented Masahiro Urushido, in New York City. It pays homage to the distinctively citrusy and floral flavor of yuzu, yet somehow builds up with a surprising and very refreshing hint of umami, helped even further by the roasted notes of the nori seaweed used as garnish. Don’t be deterred from making it because you cannot find fresh yuzu. Using juice from concentrate makes a drink just as delish. The Aki Paloma benefits from this crossroads of influences with the very Japanese yuzu citrus juice together with the classic grapefruit of a paloma and a touch of jasmine tea. Very balanced and refreshing!

This drink is of course influenced by the Hemingway Daiquiri–also called 

Papa Doble. Abraham was looking for a refreshing citrus drink with a tequila bite. 

The fact that the cherry liquor is added at last as a float, gives it strong fruity and 

floral notes. Good any time of day!

This grown-up version of a crafted paloma may seem like it has the same ingredients, making it fruity and floral. The top-up with Mumm champagne gives it a drier, elegant and very delicate profile. Perfect for brunch… or just anytime! Also it´s very easy and perfect for Spring time!
