Stamford Moms Summer Cocktail Menu | Stamford Moms

There’s nothing like a refreshing cocktail (or mocktail in my case) on a hot summer day! But it can be hard to find the perfect recipe or ready-to-drink beverage. Whether you’re at the beach, pool, tennis or golf course… here are a few of our favorites from local restaurants and brands. Enjoy!

Bartaco Paloma Fresca


    • 1 1/2 oz well tequila (Libelula)
    • 1 oz red grapefruit juice
    • 1 oz Club soda
    • 3/4 oz simple syrup
    • 1/2 oz Lime juice
    • 1 dash of grapefruit bitters*
    • 3 dashes of peychauds
    • 1/2 salt rim (thick stripe)


1. In a cocktail shaker, add everything but the Club Soda. (If you are using Bittermens hopped grapefruit bitters, 1/3 of a dasher is = 1 dash).
2. Prepare a highball glass with a 1/2 rim of salt, thick stripe and 4 ice cubes.
3. Add ice to shaker, shake and strain into a highball glass.
4. Top with Club Soda
