Weekend Cocktail #4: The Paloma

image The Paloma is a Mexican cocktail I found while playing on Martha's Mexican Fiesta ideas section of her site.

The light and fruity drink is a refreshing alternative to the average margarita.

You can use a blanco or resposado tequila and sub in grapefruit juice and splash of club soda instead of fresca.

  1. Rub rim of a highball glass with a lime wedge and twist in a small dish of coarse salt to coat the rim.

  3. Top with grapefruit soda.

I hope I get to sample "The Paloma" tonight! I'll be wearing my Sambrero necklace for the occasion.
