It’s a nice reminder to recognize the good things about being away from home so that you can incorporate them back into your routine long after you’ve left- like not rushing, and impromptu naps, and afternoon cocktails. These are the parts that I want to remember.
li hing mui paloma
Li hing mui or li hing powder can be found at most Asian food markets unless you happen to find yourself in Hawaii- then it can be purchased, well, just about everywhere. I was lucky enough to be given a tub of the powder from some lovely friends during our visit, but if you don’t feel like searching for it, pay no mind, just replace the li hing powder with some sea salt. Same goes for the grapefruit soda. Can’t find any? Just replace it with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and some soda water. Cheers!
¼ teaspoon (or more) li hing powder
Freshly squeezed juice from 1 lime
2 ounces tequila
Combine li hing powder, lime juice, and tequila in a glass of your choice. Fill your glass with ice then top with grapefruit soda. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.
