Sorry to burst your bubble, margarita on the rocks, but turns out the Paloma is the true top dog when it comes to Mexican cocktails. Here’s how to mix up a batch of this delicious grapefruit-flavored drink at home.
What You Need:
- 1 lime, halved
- Kosher salt
- 1 grapefruit, halved
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1½ ounces tequila
- Grapefruit flavored sparkling water
Step 1: Slice one half of the lime into wedges. Use a lime wedge to wet the rim of your glass before dipping the glass in salt to coat.
Step 2: Squeeze the juice from half a grapefruit and half a lime directly into the glass. Add the sugar and stir to combine.
Step 3: Pour in the tequila before adding ice. Fill the rest of the glass up with grapefruit sparkling water and garnish with a grapefruit slice. Cheers!
