Cinco De Mayo is this week and I wanted to upload a new (to me) drink that I have fallen in love with! It is a take on the classic Paloma, a tequila-based drink with grapefruit juice. My take on the drink is a little different, it has some carbonation and a whole lot of goodness. I do not like grapefruit, I have tried it several times in several variations…and I just can’t. I even have a video of me on instagram trying it, and it is VERY apparent that I do not like it. I was very surprised when I tried this drink and the grapefruit flavor wasn’t incredibly strong so I didn’t mind it one bit! I will be the first to admit that I am a beer and margarita girl, but when my dad showed me this drink it became a drink that I now consider a staple. THAT’S A BIG DEAL.
You will need:
I filled a glass with ice, preferably crushed or Sonic’s ice (the best). I added 2 oz. of a white/blanco tequila. Then poured in 1 oz. of lime juice Then I fill to the top with grapefruit soda-I used Jarritos Mexican Soda-Grapefruit.
Sunday Comfy’s Paloma
2 oz. Blanco/White Tequila
1 oz. Lime Juice
Top with Grapefruit Soda
If you try it out, let me know!
What do you do on Cinco De Mayo?
