May Showers Bring…

The Paloma—a Mexican favorite

SARA ESSEX BRADLY PHOTOGRAPH

Of course, the old saying refers to flowers, which are nice, but in spring in New Orleans, there is a preference for a well-made, balanced cocktail. And we have the research, gathered every day, to prove it. 

May’s weather is incredible; mostly sunny with mild temperatures, however, we know what’s coming. So, let’s enjoy what we have now. 

That enjoyment could include a trip to one of Metairie’s finest and most consistent restaurants, Boulevard American Bistro, which went to great lengths to create the Paloma, one of its signature cocktails. 

Boulevard has always relied on top-quality ingredients. The same attention to quality is at work in the club-like bar, a destination in itself or a perfect place for a beverage to start the dining experience. 

Mover over Margarita! The Paloma is served in several drinking places. We think Boulevard’s is among the best, in Mayo or
any other month. 
 


The Paloma

2 oz Patron Silver

3 oz Grapefruit 

1 oz agave nectar

One squeeze of fresh lime juice

8 pink peppercorns

Combine all ingredients in a tin. Shake. Strain. Serve!

 

As prepared and served at Boulevard American Bistro, 4241 Veterans Memorial Boulevard, Metairie, 889-2301, boulevardbistro.com.
