The perfect blend of tart and sweet, the Paloma cocktail is sure to tantalize your taste-buds! With its mix of tequila, lime juice and grapefruit soda, this refreshing beverage is perfect for a hot summer day or a night out under the stars. Whether you're looking for an invigorating aperitif or a simple yet satisfying cocktail, the Paloma is easy to make and sure to be a hit.

The Paloma is a famous Mexican cocktail. Made with fresh grapefruit juice and silver tequila, the Paloma is arguably more refreshing than a margarita. Travel to Mexico and quickly learn that the immensely popular margarita may differ from the preferred tequila cocktail. When I think of making a Paloma at home, I only think I need four main ingredients – tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and some bubbly soda (either plain or grapefruit-flavored. But for this recipe, I love to add a sugar rim and add sugar to the drink to make it a little sweeter.

This bright citrus drink is perfect for summer nights at home or for girls to get together. But you've been missing out if you have never had a Paloma cocktail. With fresh grapefruit, bubbly club soda, and just enough tequila to make things interesting, you have the perfect summer cocktail on your hands!
