Huevo de Paloma for MxMo LXXV

29 Jul

mxmologoSummer is arguably the best time of the year for drinking, partying and having fun in general. There’s no doubt about that, plus with temperatures constantly over 30°C, even just the idea of sitting down in front of my warm laptop makes me start sweating. This might be the reason for a lack of volunteer hosts for this month MxMo. But have no fear, my fellow bloggers, Mr. Yarm of Cocktailvirginslut is here to save us, hosting yet again another edition of this monthly happening. The theme chosen for July is a rather clever one, named Flip Flop, and you can read all about it here on Frederic’s announcement post.
Now, the idea of flipping a classic, or twisting it as some other people may say, is one of the concept in mixology that I prefer. First of all you have to start from knowledge, meaning that you must know few classics to be able to make a twist on anything: this inevitably leads to research. There is nothing better for me than spending hours on the web and over books, reading about cocktails from any era, getting to know many new and old styles of mixing. All this research leads of course to a lot of drinking, as one must put in practice what he has just learned in theory, and that’s when you start learning new techniques as well. Once you start realizing that many modern classics are spins from old classics, and that any kind of drink can be categorized in flavor, combos and techniques, well then you are becoming a true enthusiast of this trade, and that’s when you should start researching some more and never stop doing that.
As the theme of the month is flips, I decided to go for what has to be the millionth attempt to twist a Paloma, the Mexican national drink. Most of my documentation for this post comes from that great well of knowledge that is Camper English, and here’s a list of the most famous interpretation of Paloma
