Did you know the Paloma, not the Margarita, is Mexico’s most beloved cocktail?
One of my favorite drinks from our trips to Mexico is this sparkling, rosey-hued, bittersweet grapefruit drink called the Paloma. The Paloma is a traditional Mexican drink that features tequila, grapefruit juice, sparkling grapefruit soda, sparkling water, and fresh lime juice. It’s the most perfect thirst quenching mash up! I just love its citrusy flavor, tangy sweetness, and pretty pink color.
The best part about the Paloma is that it’s super simple to make. You’ll definitely want to use 100% agave silver or blanco tequila in this cocktail for the most crisp, clean flavor. Let that citrus shine through!
