Maloma

Between Stiegl Radlers and these, this summer is my summer of grapefruit. Or grapefruit drinks, I guess. I am not eating actual grapefruit. I mean, I like grapefruit. I'm just not eating it.

A maloma, if you want to know, is my play on a paloma made with malort instead of tequila. And it sort of takes the fun out of malort, because it doesn't taste horrible like this; it's a perfectly light and refreshing drink. Grapefruit goes with malort for some reason, and it's not just covering up the taste of the malort. I tried a virgin version, and I actually missed the malort.

Honey syrup, by the way, is just one part honey mixed with one part hot water that I keep in a jelly jar in the refrigerator for making drinks with honey.

For one:
1/4 c grapefruit juice
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp honey syrup
2 Tbsp malort
ice cubes
club soda

maloma

Stir together the grapefruit juice, lime juice, honey syrup, and malort in a pint glass. Fill the glass with ice cubes and top with club soda.

To bring to a picnic:
2 c grapefruit juice
1/2 c lime juice
1/4 c honey syrup
1 c malort
club soda

maloma mix and club soda

Stir together the grapefruit juice, lime juice, honey syrup, and malort in a quart mason jar. To serve, fill a red solo cup with ice, pour in maloma mix, and top with club soda.
