Paloma cocktail title

Fresh Paloma Cocktail

The Paloma is a refreshing, thirst-quenching alternative to the traditional Margarita. This version is made with freshly-squeezed grapefruit and lime juices, smooth tequila and filled with Club Soda. Citrus fruit can vary in sweetness so if the grapefruit juice is naturally too sweet, a bit of agave nectar can be added to sweeten it up if desired. A perfect warm-weather sipper or for Cinco de Mayo celebrating!
