Last night was a whole different beast, however. Slanting rain was coming down with such a fierceness that I thought I was going to wake up to a pock-marked awning. And I loved every single minute of it. Plus, as a bonus, there were a few added rumbles of thunder. I love me some thunderstorms. It's also not so bad waking up to temps in the low-50's.
You can call me a folk-lovin' hippie if you like. John Denver and I? We would've gotten along just fine.
So when a few tenacious rays of warmth battle their way successfully through the Spring haze, what do I do? I pour myself a cocktail and enjoy it. What would you do?

Stir tequila and lime juice together. Fill a pitcher with ice and pour the mixture over the top. Top off with grapefruit soda.
If you'd like, place the salt on a small plate. Before filling a glass with ice or pouring in the cocktail, wet the rim and dip it in the salt. Add ice and cocktail to salted glass. Garnish with a wheel or wedge of lime (or grapefruit).
This cocktail would make a great addition to your Cinco de Mayo festivities this year. One pitcher of Margaritas, one pitcher Palomas. Sounds muy bueno.
I received a free bottle of Piedra Azul Tequila to do with as I pleased. I received no compensation to mention them. All opinions stated in this post are my own.
