The Paloma

Since living in Texas we discovered pretty quick that one of their signature drinks is the deliciously fresh and citrusy Paloma. Traditionally, it is usually made with grapefruit soda like Jarritos or Fresca. However, I am a huge fan of cocktails that use fresh fruit juice as main ingredients. For me, that takes a drink from good to amazing! Crisp, tart, and fruitier tasting than a margarita, the Paloma is also a favorite in Mexico (Paloma is the Spanish word for “Dove”). Just like any other cocktail, everyone’s version is a little different. This is our version of the classic Paloma and skinny Paloma.

If you’ve never had one, this is bound to become your new favorite go to drink.
