New Recipe Page: The Paloma


The Paloma is the most popular tequila cocktail after the Margarita (unless you're in Mexico, where it's more popular than the Margarita). It's endlessly refreshing and dead simple to make, just blanco tequila topped with grapefruit soda, a squeeze of lime and a pinch of salt. Of course, as those familiar with me and the site won't be surprised to hear, perfecting the recipe together wasn't so easy. Over the past 6 weeks I've tried, and made Palomas with, every grapefruit soda I could get my hands on - some I had to hunt down - along with several tried different ratios and compositions (rim the glass with salt or throw it right in? one lime wedge or two?). But it was all worth it. The recipe on this new page may just put you off Margaritas for life (maybe, probably not).
