It's almost Cinco de Mayo, which means it's time to break out the tequila and mix up some delicious cocktails!
The Paloma Tequila is an exhilarating, thirst-quenching drink perfect for sipping on a hot day. Originally from Mexico, this cocktail has become popular worldwide. It's named after the Spanish word "dove," whose light pink color is reminiscent of the bird's plumage.
While a typical Paloma calls for any type of tequila, a Mexican variety gives off the best result. Cazadores Blanco is the best choice for a Paloma cocktail. The fruitiness of the tequila pairs well with the citrus flavors in the drink, and the crispness of the tequila helps to balance out the sweetness of the grapefruit juice.
Wet the rim of the glass with lime and dip it in coarse salt.
- Build the cocktail in a glass, starting with ice cubes.
