Pretty in Pink

This Dressed Up Paloma Suits Any Occasion

The traditional Paloma cocktail – in is simplest form – is one part tequila mixed with three parts grapefruit soda. But why not zhuzh it up a bit? Our “dressed up” version of the Paloma blends fresh fruit juices with sparkling water and, of course, the star of the show – a nice blanco tequila. We suspect this lovely concoction soon will become the little pink dress in your libation wardrobe!
