it’s the season of the witch.

There is nothing more fun then a spooky yet pretty cocktail. This pink potion is a classic Paloma but with a few twists and turns to make it a little extra. Butterfly pea flower which creates a witchcraft affect turning the drink from a blueish tone to a pink color. And then adding a charred grapefruit at the end which adds a smoky flavor. All details I think a witch would love! Let’s cheers Friday the 13th with this witchy grapefruit Paloma.

A Witchy Grapefruit Paloma

Author :Abby Guido
Yields :1 cocktail
Pin IT


  • 1 tbsp Butterfly pea flower
  • 1 1/4 oz grapefruit simple syrup
  • 2 oz Club soda or seltzer
  • 2 oz Grapefruit juice
  • 2 oz Tequila


  • Infuse the tequila with the butterfly pea flower for 5-10 minutes, and then drain.
  • Fill glass with ice cubes.
  • Pour the tequila and simple syrup into the glass.
  • Stir together in a separate container the grapefruit juice and seltzer.
  • Once ready to serve, top off the cocktail with juice mixture. Garnish with a charred grapefruit slice. You can do this simply by either putting the citrus slices on the grill, or you can use a kitchen torch. I find that the easiest and fastest.
  • Watch that witch craft happen as the cocktail turns from blue to shades of pink and purple.
