Meet The Paloma, Your New Favorite Tequila Cocktail

If the Margarita is the king of tequila cocktails, the Paloma is the queen. The name means "dove" in Spanish, and it's a street-smart favorite that delivers a taste of Mexico in a glass. Its sweet-tart balance is zesty and refreshing and the perfect antidote for a hot summer day.

Paloma Ingredients

  • 2 oz Tequila
  • 4 oz Grapefruit Soda (use Jarritos if you want to keep it auténtico)
  • 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Ice Cubes

How to make a Paloma

  1. In a glass, add tequila, fresh lime juice, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Fill the glass with ice cubes.
  3. Pour grapefruit soda over the ice.
  4. Stir gently.

For a personalized twist, try using different types of tequila. Blanco for a crisp taste or reposado for a smoother, slightly oaky flavor.

Paloma Riff

Spice it up by using mezcal instead of tequila for a smoky and earthy variation on the classic Paloma recope.
