Still a work in progress, but I'm happy with it where it is now.

March 2021 - Sunshine
When I think of sunshine I think of the time I lived in Phoenix, AZ. I also think about tasty drinks on a nice patio.
There used to be this little place called Sierra Bonita (R.I.P. Thanks 2020) that my ex and I loved to go grab brunch once in a while when I happened to have a weekend off. On top of the bangin' Mexican food they served a mean drink. My favorite was their Paloma with a cayenne rim.
This is my attempt to relive that a little bit. This doesn't vary too greatly from it's early iterations. The only real big change here was trying to pump the grapefruit up a bit to hold up against everything else and a little bit of cactus, which I usually hate. I can taste it in anything it's in and it's gotten stale. Here I think it blended in well enough to help the recipe along and hide in the background with the citrus and tequila.
I hope you enjoy it! 🔥
Feel free to add more Heat if you are so inclined. I haven't tried this with cooling, but if that's your thing I'm sure some WS-23 would be just fine.
