Bachelorette Party Cocktail – The Paloma

For my sister’s bachelorette party, we took a trip to Cancun for an amazing 4 day weekend of all-inclusive fine dining, creative cocktails, pristine white sand, and clear blue ocean water.  While we were there, we soon discovered a (now beloved) drink called the Paloma.  I have never been much of a tequila drinker, but this drink had me converted! Without further adieu, let me share this amazing (and simple) recipe with you that is perfect for any spring or summer occasion.

It’s light, has subtle grapefruit tones, and fizzy. Simple and refreshing!


For one serving


  • 2 oz. Don Julio Blanco Tequila 
  • 6 oz. Grapefruit soda  **Squirt soda and Grapefruit Juice works too**
  • Squirt of lime juice
  • Pinch of salt for rimming (optional)

If you are on the fence about tequila because you had an unfortunate run-in some time in your youth with a cheap variety, then it is time to try it again my friend. According to this Forbes article, tequila can lower bad cholesterol (LDL levels), reduce headaches, and generally breaks down easily in your body because it is made from simple sugars. Whether this is fact or frivolity, there’s no better time to try this refreshing cocktail. Cheers!
