Steps To Making The Perfect Paloma
Let’s get this party started, shall we? Start off with a highball glass jam-packed with ice. Next it’s time to add the star of the show – tequila! I highly recommend you go with a silver tequila especially if you’re feeling like experiencing a classic Paloma. When making your pour be sure to use about 2 oz of tequila here. Don’t go overboard, unless you enjoy waking up with a headache on the bathroom floor. Add some grapefruit soda to the mix, around 4 oz recommended then grab a lime, cut that sucker in half and squeeze one half of it into your glass before gently stirring.
To complete the aesthetic of the cocktail, salt or sugar the rim. To go above and beyond, garnish the drink with a slice of grapefruit or a wedge of lime. Congratulations! Give yourself a pat on the back because your Paloma is now ready to be enjoyed!
