It turns out that this grapefruit and tequila tipple, not the Margarita, is Mexico’s most beloved drink.  The Paloma is a light, fruity cocktail with a great fizz and one of the smoothest tequila drinks out there. 






  • 2 ounce reposado tequila
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • grapefruit soda – Jarritos or Squirt preferred
  • Pinch of salt to taste

How to prepare The Paloma Cocktail:

You can coat the glass with salt.  Add the tequila and lime juice with ice.  Top it off with grapefruit juice.  You can garnish with lime wheel.
