Paloma Rosa

Josh Goldman, Bar Caló | Los Angeles

Currently on the menu at Bar Caló, this Paloma riff “goes in a more floral direction,” says Josh Goldman, thanks to a house blend of two rose liqueurs mixed with grapefruit and a spiced elixir. The finishing touch is a spritz of rose water, which Goldman keeps in an atomizer to spray over the top of the drink.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounces blanco tequila
