Cocktail Of The Day- The Paloma

Cocktail Of The Day- because it’s always cocktail hour somewhere in the world. As I continue to channel warm weather through cocktails, this weeks #COTD is The Paloma. The combination of grapefruit and tequila is one of my favourites of all time, this cocktail being no exception. Death and Co’s recipe is my go-to these days. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also try replacing the Tequila with Mezcal for a more smokey version of this classic.


Juice of half a lime
2 oz Tequila
1/2 oz Grapefruit juice
1/2 oz Simple syrup
Grapefruit Soda

Rim a highball glass with salt. Combine lime juice, tequila, grapefruit juice and simple syrup in a shaker. Shake over ice. Strain into highball over ice. Top with grapefruit soda (I’m partial to San Pellegrino Pompelmo). Garnish with a lime wheel. Crush like a boss!
