As far as thirst quenching cocktails go the Paloma is at the top of the list. Two elements are essential in any Paloma recipe tequila and grapefruit. Not much is known about the history of the Paloma. Despite popular opinion that the margarita is the treasured drink of Mexico, the reality is the Paloma holds this honor. The Paloma is sweet, sour, a little bitter and salty it has all four taste buds covered plus ice, bubbles and tequila what’s not to like. Great ingredients make great drinks so we recommend you use Tequila that is made using 100% agave and Q’s grapefruit soda.
