A Paloma is a classic cocktail typically made with grapefruit, tequila and a salted rim. We’ve put our own spin on this paloma cocktail recipe by adding some jalapeno simple syrup and Thrive Remedies Recovery tea to give it an extra kick and added health benefits. Recovery is a blend of rooibos tea, turmeric, ginger, lemon and nettle leaf. It has an earthy flavour with a bit of bite from the ginger making it the perfect cocktail mixer. The herbs in our recovery blend are well known for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunity properties.
