Paloma with San Pellegrino Pompelmo



I have promised in one of my last posts to review the new (?) San Pellegrino grapefruit in a Paloma.
This is pretty much THE drink to try, when it comes to grapefruit sodas...

So I rigged for my bottle of Cuervo Reserva de la Familia blanco, took one well chilled Pellegrino grapefruit and even made a nice salt rim with Maldon sea salt...

Unfortunately it was not very successful...

It weren't the vegetal aromas highlighted in the tequila; but the blanco tasted unusually savory. But not very pleasant.
I even didn't added lime juice, as I thought, that Pompelmo contained enough juice (unusual high fruit content for a soda). I was right.
If this unusual result happened with the ultra smooth Cuervo Reserva de la Familia - it will result into an even more disastrous drink with rougher tequilas...
 
That doesn't make this soda bad. I welcome the high quality approach of Pellegrino with no artificial ingredients in their products and always a high fruit content. It just means, that you can't just substitute the commercial stuff.

For this attempt you still have to do it yourself...
