 Matt Armato

A simple rosemary syrup gives the classic grapefruit Paloma a hint of a little something special.


  • 1 1/2 ounces Cazadores reposado tequila

  • 3/4 ounce rosemary simple syrup*

  • 1/2 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed

  • 4 ounces grapefruit soda

  • Garnish: rosemary sprig


  1. Add the tequila, rosemary simple syrup and lime juice into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into a Collins glass.

  3. Fill the glass to the top with ice, and top with grapefruit soda.

  4. Garnish with a rosemary sprig.

*Rosemary simple syrup: Combine 2 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves (from about 1 sprig) and 1⁄2 cup water in a pot, and bring to a boil. Add 1 cup sugar and stir constantly until fully dissolved. Strain rosemary leaves and let syrup cool to room temperature before using. Do not refrigerate to quicken cooling time, as sugar may crystallize from cooling too quickly. Once cool, use immediately or store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
