Worlds Best Paloma Recipe
The Worlds Best Paloma Recipe – The perfect combination of Tequila, fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice, and lime, salt-rimmed & topped with a little club soda. A Mexican vacation in a glass.
This might be Mexico’s most popular tequila drink. This drink is traditionally made with Mexican grapefruit soda, but I think it’s too sweet so I started making this with fresh pink grapefruit juice, a little simple syrup, and club soda.

- 1 lime wedge
- Kosher salt optional
- 2 ounces blanco tequila good quality
- 1 ounce fresh pink grapefruit juice
- 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup*
- 1 ounce chilled club soda
- 1 lime wedge for garnish
- 1 pink grapefruit wedge for garnish
Moisten the outer rim of a highball glass with a lime wedge and coat lightly with salt. This step is optional.
Fill the glass with ice.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then add the tequila, grapefruit and lime juices and simple syrup; shake well.
Strain into the glass.
Gently stir in the club soda and garnish with a lime and grapefruit wedges.
*To make simple syrup the quick and easy way...
For years I boiled water, added sugar and "cooked" the syrup until the sugar dissolved and then had to wait overnight for the syrup to cool. I just always kept a bottle of simple syrup in the fridge for cocktails. Then one day I needed simple syrup and didn't have time to go through the whole process. So I just combined 1 part water and 1 part sugar in a bottle and shook to combine and dissolve the sugar. Perfect!
