There’s something about the Paloma that keeps me coming back. Maybe it’s the salted rim, maybe it’s the bittersweet balance of the grapefruit mixed with the lime and sugar… I don’t know what it is but the Paloma is my favorite cocktail ever. And I don’t even like tequila that much!
What you’ll need: 🍸
- Kosher salt
- 1 grapefruit wedge
- 1/2 cup fresh grapefruit juice
- 2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- ¼ cup mescal or tequila reposado
- ¼ cup club soda
First, pour some kosher salt on the plate. Use a lime wedge to rub some juice on the rim and dip the tim of the glass in the salt to make a ring.
Combine grapefruit juice, lime juice, and sugar in glass; shake vigorously until sugar is dissolved. Stir in mescal, add ice, and top off with club soda. Ta-da you got the Paloma cocktail, the tastiest drink known to woman.
