The Paloma is your ideal drink for when it is hot hot HOT outside 🔥 The Paloma is traditionally comprised of one part tequila and three parts grapefruit soda. To make this cocktail a little more fresh, I’ve switched some of the grapefruit soda out for ruby-red grapefruit juice and only added the soda as a topper at the end. (You can also use a regular seltzer water if you want!) Grapefruit has a lower pH than lime, so the acid content has been boosted up with a half ounce of lime juice and rounded out with a tiny bit of simple syrup.
