Hibiscus Paloma Punch

Memorial Day Weekend is here and I’m mixing up this refreshing Hibiscus Paloma Punch to welcome in summer with family and friends! The Hibiscus Paloma Punch blends the subtle sweetness of hibiscus concentrate, tanginess of grapefruit soda, and effervescence of sparkling rosé. Inspired by the traditional Paloma, which features tequila and grapefruit soda, this version adds a floral twist with hibiscus concentrate.

I loved using 21 Seeds Grapefruit Hibiscus Tequila because it adds a smooth, fresh taste that perfectly complements the other flavors. Finished with a hint of lime and a hibiscus-salt rim, this drink is as gorgeous as it is delicious. Making the homemade hibiscus concentrate takes just an extra few minutes and it’s well worth the effort. This batch cocktail serves 7 to 9 people, making it ready for sharing with friends and family!

How to Make the Hibiscus Paloma Punch

Creating this batch cocktail is easy and fun, making it perfect for any summer festivities!

Start by preparing the hibiscus concentrate. Steep hibiscus tea bags in hot water for 3-7 minutes. Then, remove the tea bags and stir in sugar until dissolved. Chill the concentrate until ready to use.

Fill a pitcher with ice. Add the 21 Seeds Grapefruit Hibiscus, grapefruit soda, sparkling rosé, hibiscus concentrate, and lime slices, stirring to combine the ingredients.

Next, prepare the glasses. Mix dried hibiscus and sea salt in a shallow dish, run a lime slice around the rim of a glass, and dip into the mixture to coat.

Divide the cocktail mixture into the prepared glasses. For an extra flair, garnish each drink with slices of grapefruit and hibiscus flowers before enjoying!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is hibiscus concentrate?

Hibiscus concentrate is sweet and tangy made by steeping hibiscus tea bags in hot water and dissolving sugar. It’s used to add a rich, floral flavor to drinks.

What’s the difference between a Paloma and a Margarita?

A Paloma combines tequila, grapefruit soda, and lime juice, and is typically served on the rocks with a salt rim. In contrast, a Margarita combines tequila, triple sec (or another orange liqueur), and lime juice, and you can serve it either on the rocks or blended with ice. The main difference is flavors: the Paloma is more citrusy and refreshing due to the grapefruit soda, while the Margarita is tangier and often sweeter due to the triple sec.

What are the origins of the Paloma?

Mexico is believed to be the birthplace of the Paloma cocktail, though its exact origins are unclear. It is thought to be named after La Paloma (“The Dove”), a popular folk song in Mexico. The Paloma’s simple ingredients and refreshing taste have made it one of the most beloved tequila-based drinks.

What if I don’t have sparkling rosé?

If you don’t have sparkling rosé, sub with regular rosé and add a splash of club soda for the effervescence. Alternatively, you can use a different sparkling wine like Prosecco.

How can I make the punch sweeter or less sweet?

To adjust the sweetness, modify the amount of sugar in the hibiscus concentrate or use a sweeter grapefruit soda. If you prefer a less sweet punch, reduce the sugar in the hibiscus concentrate or use a less sweet soda.
