AUTHOR Olmeca Barman
2 oz. tequila blanco
2 oz. grapefruit soda (or similar)
1 oz. fresh lime juice
1 jalapeño pepper, sliced thinly
3 dashes of bitters (optional)

To make your own Spicy Paloma with Jalapeños at home, try the following steps: Add 2 oz of tequila and 1 oz of lime juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds, until the ingredients are well-chilled. Strain the mixture into a salt-rimmed glass over fresh ice. Top off the drink with 2 oz of grapefruit soda and garnish by pressing down on a jalapeño slice until it releases its oils over top of the drink. Put a few slices of jalapeños for more heat.

A spicy paloma is a refreshing cocktail made with tequila, grapefruit soda, and a jalapeño slice. It’s a fun drink that’s perfect for summer parties and outdoor events.

So why drink spicy palomas? Because they’re delicious! They’re also easy to make, so you can mix up a batch of them at home or just buy them at your local bar or restaurant. If you’re feeling adventurous, try making your own jalapeño-infused tequila—it’s super simple to do and tastes amazing!

Drinking a spicy paloma is a great way to add some flavor to your drinking experience without adding too much sugar or calories. The jalapeños add just enough spice to give your paloma an extra kick while still letting the fruitiness of the grapefruit soda shine through on its own.

It’s also a fun drink to serve at parties because it takes advantage of all those leftover limes from making margaritas! We recommend using fresh ingredients whenever possible, but if you’re hosting an event and want to save some cash on drinks (and have plenty of limes around), this drink will be just as delicious when made with bottled lime juice instead of fresh squeezed.
