Chili oil palomaToday is part two of Seattle-based mixologist and blogger Natalie Migliarini’s favorite tequila cocktail recipes. We shared her first beautiful (and tasty) recipe for a Paloma Chili Flake Jelly Shot with you yesterday. In case you missed it, you can check it out here.

Today, we’d like to share another eye-popping cocktail from her with you. This recipe takes the traditional Paloma’s citrusy zing of grapefruit and enhances it with the sweet heat of chili oil. We think it’s the perfect drink recipe for Cinco de Mayo!
