Colonia Publica’s IPA-lada

Today’s 5 star secret recipe comes from Colonia Publica in Whittier, California.  This stylish Mexican gastropub is popular for its micheladas and modern cantina plates.  At Colonia Publica they’ve created a twist on the michaleada called an Ipa-Lada.  This drink takes muddled cucumber, lemon juice and sugar and mixes it with fresh grapefruit juice.  This is then poured over a grapefruit IPA like Ballast Point’s Grapefruit Sculpin.  You can substitute your favorite grapefruit IPA in this recipe.
