It’s hatch chile season, people! There are so many fun things about summer and one of those things is taking advantage of the the fresh fruits and vegetables as they come into their true seasons. Early summer is great for fresh berries. Midsummer is a delight for fresh corn, watermelon and peaches! Now we are in that sweet spot of the summer when hatch chiles are in full season. We capitalized on the hatch chiles back in September 2018 with our Hatch Tequila Chicken recipe, which we highly recommend. As a matter of fact, we have some marinating in our refrigerator right now! Yummo!
This summer we are introducing you to our hatch chile paloma. This recipe is based on our usual paloma recipe with just a little spice of fresh hatch chiles. It’s easy, tasty and fresh! The addition of the hatch chiles gives the paloma a little extra fire without overpowering the overall flavor of the cocktail.
The ingredients that you need for this spicy little cocktail are: tequila, grapefruit soda (we prefer Q sparkling grapefruit), fresh lime juice and a fresh hatch chile.
Add the lime juice and a couple of small slices of the hatch chile to a shaker and muddle well. Add tequila and ice and shake for about 20 seconds. Pour into a serving glass over ice. Top off with Q sparkling grapefruit. Add a couple of slices of hatch chile for garnish and enjoy!
