Well, happy Friday, friends! I don’t know about you but I am ready for summer to make her grand entrance because these little beauties have been calling my name. Festive, delicious, and wildly easy to make, the Paloma has become a warm-weather staple in our house. I discovered this little babes when living in Austin and have happily brought them with me wherever we’ve moved.
For all my grapefruit lovers, this is for you. Love margs but hate the sugar? This is for you! Searching for the perfect “go-to” cocktail this summer – oh, yeah, this is absolutely for you! Give her a try & tell us what you think!
– 1/2 cup Tequila– 1/2 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (Trader Joe’s & Whole Foods has some great ones!)– 1/2 cup Topo Chico (if you can’t find that, use Club Soda)– 1 tablespoon lime juice– OPTIONAL: Salt or sugar for rim
1. If you like a salted rim, go ahead and fill a shallow plate with salt, run a lime wedge around the rim of the glass, & rim it with salt. I like my Paloma’s without salt, but it’s totally up to you!
2. Fill two glasses with a few ice cubes & add in your ingredients. Stir gently & serve, sip, repeat!
