Paloma Fresca | Cocktail Party

Paloma Fresca

Paloma Fresca cocktail with gin and grapefruit soda

We’re huge fans of the Paloma, a refreshing tequila cocktail with grapefruit soda. It’s even better with real, fresh pink grapefruit, so we worked out the proportions for this recipe.

Ingredients

Instructions

The agave (or simple) syrup is optional. Add your tequila and juices to your shaker first, stir it a bit, and taste – if it needs to be a little sweeter, add the syrup and taste it again.

Once you’ve added the appropriate amount of sweetener, add ice and shake. Strain into an ice-filled glass and top with the sparkling water. Garnish with a wedge or wheel of lime.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
