We all love a margarita, but if you ask me, this paloma cocktail is just as good! Made with grapefruit and lime juice, it's sweet, sour, and refreshing.


When Jack and I lived in Austin, we’d always order paloma cocktails on summer afternoons at Hula Hut. It had a big deck right on Lake Austin, and it was filled with people all summer long. We loved to sit there in the hot sun, sipping our cocktails and sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with friends.



帕洛玛Cocktail Ingredients

A traditional paloma cocktail consists of tequila, lime juice, and grapefruit soda. My recipe is a fresher version of this classic combination. Here’s what’s in it:

  • 龙舌兰酒 -Use any good-quality blanco tequila in this recipe. We like这个品牌,但随意使用自己喜欢的!
  • 西柚汁,还有苏打水 -我换了传统的柚子苏打水西柚汁和苏打水的混合。为了获得最佳的味道,使用鲜榨西柚汁!
  • 青柠汁 -随着柚子汁,它使这种饮料可口挞。
  • 龙舌兰花蜜或simple syrup因为我没有在这个配方使用苏打水,我平衡葡萄柚和石灰的东西甜的酸/酸味。我呼吁龙舌兰或简单的糖浆的量小,但不要犹豫,更增添情趣。
  • 盐 -为了您的玻璃的边缘!我喜欢用粗海盐,但是粗盐将在这里工作过。
  • 冰 -A paloma cocktail is always better on the rocks!





  • 味道和调节。每当你在家里,品味鸡尾酒和调整,以找到你所爱的味道的平衡。如果你喜欢更甜帕洛玛,加入龙舌兰或简单糖浆的一个额外的飞溅。欲了解更多锋利,挤在额外的石灰。玩得开心使得它的方式你喜欢它!
  • 如果它是太强大了,让冰开始融化。If your paloma tastes too strong when you first try it, let it sit for a few minutes at room temperature. As the ice melts, it will dilute the drink. If it’s still stiffer than you’d like it to be, top your glass with more sparkling water.
  • Change it up!I love this recipe as written, but it’s also delicious with mezcal. If you try this variation, you might want to add additional sweetener, to taste, to balance the smoky flavor. This paloma cocktail is also fantastic with some heat! To make it spicy, drop a few jalapeño slices into the tequila and let it sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before you make your drink.

    I love Palomas!! I am stocked with fresh grapefruits and limes and tequila (and mezcal!!) but my only club soda is lemon/lime seltzer. Would you alter the recipe at all for that? Maybe add a dash of salt and taste before adding the lime?

    • 珍妮·多诺弗里奥

      Yep, I’d just taste before adding the lime – I think it’ll be totally fine! If it’s too tart, you can adjust the amount of sweetener. I’d keep the salt for the rim of the glass.

  4. what a wonderful cocktail, tequila is great in a cocktail, not straight! Nice flavors too with agave and grapefruit plus lime, very well balanced, thank you!

    Oh my, I was looking around for ways to make use of a big bag of limes my friend gave me. And this is it…Palomas! Can’t agree more that fresh juice makes all the difference. Thanks, you’ve made my day.

    This was my first time making chicken satay, and I have to say I picked a winner. Three chicken breasts, all gone with 2 girls and me. Amazing. I added a bit more of the chili to the sauce as it wasn’t quite spicy enough without it for us (wife cooks spicy a lot), but still delish and great pairing. Also, younger daughter doesn’t really like peanut butter but scarfed the sauce right up. Definitely making it again this summer.
