Happy Hour: La Paloma

In honor of today being Cinco de Mayo, I figured I'd do a traditional and tasty Mexican drink. Without further ado... La Paloma!!

Here it is:


  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • pinch of salt
  • grapefruit soda

And here's what to do with it all:

Combine the tequila (reposado, preferably), lime juice, and salt in your glass. Add ice, top off with grapefruit soda, and stir. The best soda to use is the Mexican Jarritos brand, although any soda or lemon-lime soda with a splash of grapefruit juice will work out as well. You can salt the rim of your glass, margarita style, or even throw a pinch of salt in the drink! Either way, you're sure to enjoy this Cinco de Mayo cocktail!

Drink responsibly and enjoy the fiesta! Ole!!
