One of our absolute favorite summertime sippers is the Paloma. The sweet tartness of grapefruit with the vegetal agave elements and a little pop of effervescence make it total perfection! Which is why it is by far one of the most beloved cocktails in Mexico and beyond. So as we look ahead at our summer 2021 cocktail playlist, we are making sure to add the simple yet delicious Pink Tiger cocktail with Ojo de Tigre mezcal into heavy rotation.
We recently made this cocktail on Instagram Live with our own Tara Fougner chatting with Ninotchka Gandulla, National Brand Ambassador of Ojo de Tigre, which raised over $3,000 for ROAR.NY in the process thanks to all of your support with tuning in and watching. So we asked Nino about the drink and she shared, “The Pink Tiger is a refreshing take on a Paloma. The citrus soda compliments the subtle smoke, and the notes of herbality and fresh and dry fruit in Ojo de Tigre mezcal. It’s such an easy sipper.”
