Paloma (which means “dove” in Spanish) is the national cocktail of Mexico, and one of the most popular drinks the world over. This is a simple-to-make, balanced and particularly refreshing cocktail. Sweet and sour but also salty, with the characteristic flavour of grapefruit soda and a slice of grapefruit for garnish, it appeals to every cocktail lover. World Paloma Day is celebrated on 22 May.
The only ingredients you need to create this emblematic cocktail so you can celebrate this special day like a true Mexican are: Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver tequila, Three Cents Pink Grapefruit Soda, lime, pink grapefruit, salt, and a cheerful mood!
50 ml Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver
10 ml lime juice
Three Cents Pink Grapefruit Soda
Pink grapefruit for garnish, and salt
Run a wedge of lime around the rim of a tumbler and dip into the salt. Fill with ice, add Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver tequila, lime juice and top up with Three Cents Pink Grapefruit Soda. Garnish with a slice of pink grapefruit to serve and enjoy!
