Add some savory peppercorn and sweet ginger notes to a traditional tequila classic with this Peppercorn Paloma. Hints of pepper’s heat and flavor float around in the bubbles of the grapefruit soda to give a touch more complexity to the common Paloma. If you love smoke, add a touch of mezcal to change the flavor profile substantially.
In a tall glass, combine tequila, both juices, ginger liqueur and peppercorn tincture along with the cracked peppercorn. Stir well, then add ice. Top off the cocktail with a healthy pour of grapefruit soda and garnish with a grapefruit slice, peel or additional peppercorn. And a little sprig of lemon verbena if you have it.
