Whooo. this has my name all over it. The Perfect Paloma Cocktail The Paloma is the most popular tequila based cocktail in Mexico and if you struggle to drink tequila cocktails because they bring back too many dreadful memories of drunken student days and debauchery, this might just be the alternative. Its delightfully refreshing and sophisticated, complimenting spicy Mexican food perfectly.
Top one or two shots of tequila with grapefruit soda. The classic brand to use is grapefruit-flavored (“Toronja”) Jarritos, but you could try it with any brand you like, or DIY with grapefruit juice, seltzer, and simple syrup. Garnish with a lime wedge.
