The Paloma is a perfectly refreshing combination of sweet and tart with, grapefruit, lime, Tequila, simple syrup and a rim of chili-lime salt. It is the perfect beverage for a simple cocktail party, wedding reception, or just relaxing on the beach. It is delicious in a single cocktail, but just as easy to whip up a batch (even though you won’t want to share). A beautiful garnish of a fresh Ruby Red Grapefruit and a jalapeño ring finish it off.
