Enjoy your garden

Enjoying your garden is another clear reason for moving to Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford. By stepping out of the city you are more likely to have more green space to enjoy. During the summer months especially the pleasure of a garden comes into play. 

A night in your garden with family and friends in Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford is probably one of the more relaxing summer pleasures. If you have a bit of a taste for all things Mexican this summer you could do worse than perfect the preparation of a Paloma. This is a special and refreshing summer cocktail to savour in the garden. 

Paloma is Spanish for dove and this cocktail was allegedly created in Mexico by Don Javier Delgado Corona in Tequila. A Classic Paloma has 60 ml of silver tequila, 30mls of freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice, 15 ml of freshly squeezed lime juice and 8 ml of Agave syrup all stirred up in a highball glass over ice. You can top it up with a bit of soda if you like fizz.

If you like to keep your summer cocktail making in Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford really simple you could just make a Simple Paloma. For this, you use 60 ml of silver tequila, 8 MLS of freshly squeezed lime juice over crushed ice and top it all up with 120 mils of a quality Grapefruit soda.

To spice things up, what about The Paloma Picante? This takes 60 ml of silver tequila, 8 ml of habanero nectar, 60 ml of grapefruit soda and 4 cubes of ruby red grapefruit. Muddle the grapefruit cubes in a highball glass. Add the rest of the ingredients and crushed ice, and then top with the quality grapefruit soda. This will certainly bring the taste of Mexico to help you enjoy your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford garden this summer.
