Cazuela Cocktail – Voladora
Summer is winding down, soon the nights will be cooler and the chilly days will be upon us. But until that happens I plan to savor every last drop of summer with family and friends. Just in time for Labor Day I wanted to share with you a refreshing cocktail that not only is beautiful, but is served communal style. I placed this voladora cazuela cocktail at the center of the table and everyone was free to serve themselves. I am in love with the presentation.
This cazuela cocktail is traditionally served in a clay pot, a cazuela throughout Jalisco. I first spotted it on instagram from a fellow foodie friend Lola and instantly knew I had to serve it at my next dinner party.
The voladora cocktail served in a cazuela is refreshing, vibrant and goes down smoothly. Brimming with fresh grapefruit slices, lime and oranges slices and spiked with tequila this cocktail is similar to a paloma.
- 1 grapefruit sliced
- 2 oranges sliced
- 1 lime sliced
- Zest from 1 lime
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- 6 cups tequila blanco
- 4-5 cups Fresca Squirt or Jarritos Grapefruit soda
To a cazuela, add citrus slices and sprinkle them a salt. Add remaining ingredients, stir to combine and add ice. Place at the center of table and allow guest to serve themselves.
Oh, I love this idea! What a beautiful, simple presentation!
