La Paloma, Tequila Cocktail

La Paloma

If you've never had this drink before, you will be very surprised just how well Tequila and Grapefruit go together. La Paloma is very a refreshing drink and a great substitute for the too common margarita. Prepare some Grapefruit ice cubes the night before to battle the summer heat.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1 Drink


- 2 parts (ounces) Tequila (reposado)
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- Grapefruit soda


Combine the tequila (reposado, preferably but it doesn't really matter) and lime juice in a tall glass. Add ice, top off with grapefruit soda, and stir. Best if served with a salted rim.

Recommended Spirits:
Patron Silver, 1800 Tequila, Sauza Tequila, Jose Cuervo.
