Make This Weekend: La Valoma | A Special Paloma recipe from Volcan de Me Tierra Tequila

by | May 3, 2018 | Make this Weekend, Sips | 2 comments

How about we try something a little different for Cinco De Mayo this year?  Don’t worry.  I’m still a Margarita-loving Texas girl but I like to branch out as well!

My dear friend and now Maestra de Tequila, Gela Gallardo, has created a wonderful new tequila brand, Volcan de Mi Tierra and I’m thrilled to share her La Paloma, or rather La Valoma recipe with you.

Volcan de Mi Tierra Blanco was created over many years by Gela from her vision.  A native of Mexico, Gela is passionate and talented.  In Dallas, you can find Volcan de Mi Tierra at Pogo’s and Specs.

I’m excited that the weather is warm and to begin adding recipes to my Make This Weekend series.  I seem to be more inspired to create with the weather is warm and the sun is shining!  I hope you’ll join me in making one of these this weekend and throughout the summer.

    Thank you for sharing this – it was a fun variation to our cinco de mayo neighborhood gathering. Also I love your top in these photos. Can you share details on where I can find? You are so talented! Thank you!

      Hi Shannon! Thank you so much! This top is “vintage” Tory Burch. You might try searching eBay. I’ll let you know if I see it again!

Color Crush: Coral

Color Crush: Coral

Lately, I’ve found myself having a color crush on coral! It is such a flattering color on all skin tones. I love that coral comes in so many shades! It can lean more pink, orange or red depending upon the fabric. You can shop all of my coral picks in my boutique!
