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.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
