Blood Orange Margarita-ish club soda coctail
I have chosen flv agave tequila, flv citrus soda as the base with a drop of extra lime to sharpen the profile.
FLV agave Tequila
I tequila low so as not to make it too boozy, go up to 0.75, if you so please.
FLV Citrus Soda
Stayed relatively low here to leave space for the rest of the flavours. Just used to break the monotony of the tequila. The flavours i selected to use with the tequila sits almost on the same spectrum and i needed something to just give the base some body and depth.
CAP Super Sweet
Along with the Citus soda helps give sweeteness and depth
FA Lime Cold Pressed
Just a dash of juicy lime to sharpen the profile. I chose cold pressed because its a nice sweet and juice lime. Not too zetsy, and no real bitterness. Didnt want to overload as the tequila is plenty bitter already.
FA Blood Orange
This is the star of the show. I love love FA blood orange. Sweet, crisp, loads of citrus high notes and not too deep "red toned" if that makes sense... I wanted a mid to high tone note here... To almost sit on the same spectrum as the tequila.
Again sits on the same spectum as the blood orange and tequila. Together they come accross muddled and they almost translate to a new, unique flavour.Linear, dryish ginger with a tame ginger bite.
Note: ws-23 is a 25% dilution
Traditionally, the Mexican Paloma is served on the rocks and prepared by mixing tequila, fresh lime juice and grapefruit-flavored soda, like Jarritos.
In the US - the cocktail is often made with Fresca or Squirt.
This mix is very very much like Fresca with a dash of tequila and lime. iIt is incredibly refreshing and easily an ADV for me. tested on the reload s at 50 watrs.
The combination of citrus soda, honey pomelo and Pink guava really create a spot on fresca soda off the shake
citrus soda to me is a slightly flat sprite
Honey pomelo is a ripe bright grapefruit with out the biting notes and is slightly sweet
Pink guava brings out more of the pink grapefruit notes and at this percent had a very very light hop note which works with the tequila
Lime Tahiti pushes those grapefruit notes up top and is noted on the inhale
Tequila agave is hard to describe but to me it is very similar to cactus but slightly sweeter and wetter . it is smooth no harshness or booze in the least . I am noting it more on the exhale
NOTE I added a drop of WS 23 and FLV sweetness to add vibrancy and sweetness to the soda . CAP grapefruit could be used around 7% instead of Honey Pomelo but it will have a slightly bitter tart note and leans more white grapefruit then pink
