Cyclone is a cocktail that balances and harmonizes two spirits, while paying homage to a cocktail, [Paloma] with a historically ominous beginning.

The Paloma was thought to be created sometime in the 50’s.  However, some of the first sitings weren’t until the early 80’s in Guadalajara, Mexico, and went by the names, Fresca’s or Paloma’s. What we do know is, the Paloma is deliciously refreshing and consists of tequila grapefruit soda, lime and salt.

  • .5 oz (15 ml) Agave

  • .5 oz ( 15 ml) Belvedere Vodka

    I started off working for non-profits, then teaching at charter schools in marginalized communities throughout Chicago, Oakland, CA and Portland, Oregon. My passion for learning, teaching and history is undeniable, but I was struggling financially, so I began moonlighting as a bartender just to make ends meet, and unexpectedly fell madly in love with every aspect of the bar business. For my squad and I, it is about so much more than making a great cocktail. It’s about memories, music, history and sharing those moments, ensuring you embrace the present, reflect on the past and securing a bright future. Javier is the President/Historian for The Wildflower Squad which is Bartending Service for Private Events as well as offering consulting for Bar owners.
