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.
- 2 oz Tequila
- 4 oz Grapefruit Soda (use Jarritos if you want to keep it auténtico)

- Pinch of Salt
- Ice Cubes
- In a glass, add tequila, fresh lime juice, and a pinch of salt.
- Fill the glass with ice cubes.

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