Paloma Mixed Drink

Mexico’s favorite cocktail blends tequila and grapefruit soda for a crisp, refreshing drink that’s enjoyable all year.

Rim glass with salt and fill with ice. Shake ingredients, except for soda water, and strain into glass. Fill remainder with soda water.

Variations include using grapefruit or other citrus-flavored soda, instead of grapefruit juice and soda water. For complexity, add a splash of Italian aperitif bitters.

Swapping the regular tequila for rose tequila lends a floral flavor and beautiful pink shade to the drink.
