The Creamy Coconut Pearl Paloma

Have you ever had a life experience so closely tied to a food or drink that you can’t imagine either separately? For me, putting coconut and lime together brings back to my honeymoon in the Virgin Islands! I've gone a little bit more tropical today, and strayed from the classic Paloma recipe of citrus and tequila. Instead, I’ve created a refreshing combination with coconut milk, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, and reposado tequila. Shaken up until frothy and cold, this is a dreamy, creamy, dairy-free cocktail that feels like a cool breeze on a summer’s day!
