This Paloma cocktail uses fresh squeezed grapefruit for a fresh flavor and citrusy tang. A nice, high-quality silver tequila for a paloma is recommended, but you can use whatever favorite you have.
- 8 ounces ice
- 1 1⁄2 ounces tequila
- 2 ounces grapefruit juice, fresh squeezed
- 2 ounces club soda
- lime wedge (garnish)
- Pour the ingredients over the ice, stir briefly to incorporate ingredients. Garnish with a wedge of lime and enjoy immediately.
This was a great cocktail. We had these while watching the football game, and it was a great drink to sip and enjoy. My limes were too tart, and the drinks were on the slightly tart side, so I didn't use the limes and instead added a quick splash of sweetened lime juice to our drinks. Yum. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Linky. Made for your Week 8 win in the Football Pool.
This is a tasty substitution for a margarita. I loved the citrus combination of grapefruit and lime ... which I kicked up a bit by doubling. Okay, so I am a light weight. Great flavor!
