The Simple Yet Tangy Ingredients In A Classic Mexican Paloma Cocktail
A fresh Paloma just may be the best cocktail you could drink on a warm day. This sweet and tart Mexican cocktail is just alcoholic enough and super easy to whip up, even on a hot day.
Most recipes for a homemade Paloma will include tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, a sweetener, and club soda for topping. However, the original recipe is even simpler.
A classic Paloma you'd be served in Mexico comes together with just tequila and grapefruit soda over ice. The brand Squirt is likely the easiest-to-find grapefruit soda around.
The grapefruit soda gives your Paloma its signature flavor, tanginess, sweetness, and effervescence, all without having to squeeze any limes or buy a bottle of club soda.
This cocktail is so easy that you can even set out bottles of tequila and grapefruit soda and let guests mix their own. A salted rim on the glass is welcome, but not necessary.
