cinco de mayo, tequila, paloma, cocktail

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!

What better way to celebrate such a wonderful day than with an ice cold Paloma!

Until a few months ago I had never heard of a Paloma.

<Gasp, I know>

But I hadn't!

I was asked to create a Paloma recipe for the magazine I write for, so I googled it and started creating a recipe to my likings.


This is my husband and mines new favorite cocktail!  When we're up at the lake house we seem to drink it ALL the time!

Speaking of the lake.....where we are in California we need rain to fill up our lakes.  


We drive by another lake on our way up to our lake house and there are now islands and land where there used to be a LOT of feet of water.  

It's so sad.  This summer will not be a bit boating summer for sure unless we get A TON of rain.

Which I don't see happening.  Which is a bummer.  So extra pool time is how we will be spending our summer time up at the lake this year.  Fingers crossed that this winter brings all of the rain that we need!

OK, back to the cocktail!

In celebration of Cinco De Mayo, I decided to share my recipe with you all so that you too can enjoy the deliciousness that is, The Paloma!

This is such a simple cocktail to make.  First add your tequila.

Next add the grapefruit juice.

Add in the lime juice (I used frozen lime juice made from a neighbors lime tree, yum).

Onto the simple syrup.

And finally the grapefruit soda.

Give it a good stir to mix everything together well and enjoy!

Onto the recipe!!

Yield: 1


This delicious cocktail is so satisfying as it mixes tequila with the refreshing taste of grapefruit juice and other ingredients to bring you a cocktail that you'll definitely want seconds of.
