AUTHOR Olmeca Barman
Ingredients
2 parts Altos Plata tequila
1 part Grapefruit soda (grapefruit juice and sparkling water)
1 part Freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 Agave or simple syrup

Method

Rim your glass with water, lime, or grapefruit wedge, then roll in salt to coat. Mix the tequila, lime juice and sugar syrup: When well mixed, pour over a tall glass with ice. You can also mix these straight in the glass (it’s easier if you skip the sugar; less sweet but still delicious!). The next step to prepare your Paloma drink is the grapefruit soda. You can select any kind, but opt for Jarritos, Squirt or Fresca for a more traditional version. Top it off with grapefruit soda: Remember, you can always choose to make your Paloma with grapefruit juice and club soda instead. Garnish and enjoy!
