Tequila • Spicy
Paloma Caliente

The perfect Highball for spicy cocktail-loving heat-seekers, this variation on the classic Paloma mixes the cooling flavors of a Mojito with raw capsicum heat. Made with fresh muddled jalapeño, mint, vegetal blanco tequila and sweet, spritzy, citrusy Squirt, it’s both fiery and refreshing at once. Serve it with homemade chips and tequila-spiked guacamole and you’ll have the perfect start to a proper fiesta.
