Our version, the Altos Sonic, has only 3 ingredients: Altos Plata, tonic and club soda. Only 5 minutes. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it tastes simple.

Other Citrus Fruits to Combine with Tequila Soda Water
If you don’t particularly like lime, or you want to slightly vary the flavor of the cocktail, we recommend using other citrus fruits as an accompaniment. It is normal to prepare it with lime, but here are three alternative citrus fruits that you can consider:
- Orange: to give a sweeter touch to an already bitter drink.
- Lemon: although sweeter than lime, it keeps the characteristic acidity of lime intact.
- Grapefruit: a version more similar to Paloma.
