The Paloma

Another wonderful use for the grapefruit hiding out in your bottom refrigerator drawer, the Paloma cocktail is extremely popular south of the border. Be carefu, ’cause you’ll wanna drink them like a cold beer in the summer. Yet another gulp-able cocktail that drinks well with grilled food.

Here we go –

  • 1/4 cup grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • club soda to fill

Rim a hi-ball with a grapefruit wedge, then rim w/ coarse salt. Pour 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice w/ ½ oz lime juice & 1 tsp sugar, stir till sugar is dissolved. Add 1/4 cup good tequila, stir again. Fill glass up with cracked ice, then fill with club-soda. Stir again, throw a wedge of grapefruit on the rim and enjoy.
