How To Make The Perfect Paloma With Topo-Chico
Summer is just around the corner. Cool down and relax with this refreshing and easy to make Paloma Cocktail Recipe. It only requires a few ingredients and is packed with grapefruit flavor.
What’s The Best Tequila For A Paloma?
I’m going to be honest with you, for this recipe I used Kirkland brand Silver Tequila from Costco. It’s not very expensive and the bottle is huge so you won’t run out quickly. Personally I think it’s a great tequila to have on hand. However, feel free to use your favorite tequila. I recommend using silver. If you want to change it up, a mezcal would be a fun smoky option to try as well.
What’s The Best Grapefruit Soda For A Paloma?
My favorite fizzy addition to a Paloma isn’t exactly a soda. I love to use Topo-Chico Twist of Grapefruit Mineral Water. Typically Squirt, Fresca, or Jarritos are popular additions to a Paloma cocktail as well. The Grapefruit Topo-Chico doesn’t have all of the added sugar that sodas do and mixes well with a grapefruit juice to make a lower calorie Paloma option that’s still refreshing and flavorful!
