Paloma (South Of The Border)

An upscale version of the classic sour
2 oz Blanco tequila
2 oz Grapefruit juice
12 oz Lime juice
12 oz Elderflower liqueur, St. Germain
Instructions
Shake with ice, and strain into an ice filled rocks glass. Garnish with a lime or grapefruit wedge.
Notes
The original recipe called for .25 oz St. Germain and .25 ounce Simple Syrup. After a few tries, I doubled the St Germain and omitted the Simple Syrup entirely, as I felt the floral taste of the elderflower liqueur was too nuanced, and needed to be more forward.
