Paloma Recipe

Paloma
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Active Time: | Makes: 1 drink

For a change of pace from the everyday margarita, try the Paloma, which is like a margarita with bubbles. This drink from the general manager of Chicago’s Salud Tequila Lounge lets the sweetness of the tequila take center stage.

What to buy: Any 100 percent agave reposado tequila will do the trick.

A grapefruit soda like Squirt would work well in this cocktail.
