It's National Tequila Day, so let's celebrate!

This week's cocktail could not be easier to make, and it's refreshing and delicious!


The Paloma is a pretty standard cocktail that combines the flavors of tequila and citrus in a fabulously fizzy way.

Pro tip: Never settle for cheap tequila. Just don't.


  • 2 oz. tequila (blanco is fine, but use what you like!)
  • 2 oz. grapefruit soda (I recommend Jarritos, but Fresca works too)
  • .5 oz. fresh lime juice
  • fresh lime wedge, to garnish
  • salt, to garnish (optional)

If desired, rim a tall glass with salt. Fill the salt-rimmed glass with ice, then combine the tequila, lime juice, and soda. Garnish with a fresh lime wedge, and enjoy!

Switch it up:

Use more or less tequila, soda, or lime juice to suit your tastes.
Replace the lime juice with fresh ruby red or regular grapefruit juice.
Add a little chipotle chile powder to the salt before rimming the glass.
