Enjoy the refreshing taste of the Paloma.


  • 50ml Tequila
  • 1 pink grapefruit, juiced
  • Lime wedge
  • 75ml Soda water
  • Sugar syrup (optional)


Step 1

Using a shaker filled with ice, add the tequila, grapefruit juice and sugar syrup (if you’re using it) Squeeze in the juice of the lime wedge. Shake until well combined. Pour into a tumbler filled with ice and top with soda.

Step 2

Garnish with fruit slices and a rosemary twig.

Step 3

NOTES If you wish to rim the glasses with salt, use a lime wedge to wipe the rims then invert the glasses in a shallow dish of salt. The sharpness of grapefruits vary a lot so you may need to add a little sugar syrup prior to shaking. We find 10ml sugar syrup to be just right to balance out the drink a little.
