Give Your Bourbon A Paloma Vibe With This 2-Ingredient Cocktail
If you like a classic paloma, try mixing sweet bourbon with tangy and bitter grapefruit juice for an incredibly well-balanced whiskey cocktail with a paloma vibe.
Since bourbon and grapefruit can be equally bold in taste, you’ll want to use a 1:1 ratio of bourbon to grapefruit juice. If you want the bourbon to stand out, use 1:.5.
Choose bourbons like Angel's Envy, which has a warm, citrus flavor, or Blanton's Single Barrel, which smells like fresh citrus and offers a soft, floral, and orange taste.
For the grapefruit, you can use soda or juice, but you may want to sweeten the juice a bit with some simple syrup. Fresca or Betty Buzz Sparkling Grapefruit are good soda options.
