Try this delicious & refreshing Paloma Cocktail with a blend of tequila, grapefruit juice, a little bit of squirt and a splash of lime. It’s the perfect drink for any occasion.
Did you know that next to Margaritas, Palomas are one of the most popular drinks in Mexico?
It’s good to see that it has become very popular in the United States! About 5-6 years ago not many people knew about this drink. My husband and I had to tell the bartenders our cocktail recipe!
And now, it’s so popular here that most places have it on their menu. We can’t complain about their popularity! We love being able to order Palomas everywhere.
The best is still making them at home though. They’re so easy to mix!
What kind of tequila works best?
For mixed drinks, Mr. Delish and I like to use a good tequila such Corralejo Reposado. We usually save the best ones for when we choose to sip tequila versus adding it to mixed drinks
