Palomas are a cocktail made with grapefruit soda, grapefruit juice, tequila or mezcal, and served with a salty rim. It’s like if a margarita and a salty dog had a love child. Palomas can be made on the rocks or frozen – a frozen paloma is sooo good in the summertime, and is also great with winter citrus. This recipe can be scaled up easy, too!
I’m a sucker for citrusy cocktails – anything blood orange, grapefruit or lime based, you can bet your bottom dollar i’ll order it.
Palamos are super easy to make at home. You’re basically making a boozy grapefruit juice combo. Juice your citrus, combine with tequila, and blend with ice.
And don’t forget to serve with a Tajin rim!!!
This recipe can also be made into an alcohol-free paloma by doubling the grapefruit seltzer and omitting the tequila.
