Makes One Paloma
2 oz of tequila
2 oz of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
Juice from 1/2 lime
1 tsp agave nectar (you can use simple syrup if you don’t have agave nectar)
2 oz of water or club soda (traditionally it’s made with club soda but we made it with just water and it was great that way too)
sea salt for the rim if you like a salted glass
If you want to salt the rim of your glass. Take a wedge of lime and coat the rim of your glasses with the lime. Pour salt onto a small plate, flip your glass upside down and coat the lime juice covered rim in the salt. Set your glass aside
Juice your grapefruits. Add 2 oz of freshly squeezed juice to your glass.
Add juice from half of a lime to your glass. We use this juicer for lemons and limes. It works really well, but would definitely not fit a grapefruit haha.
Add 2 oz of tequila. We love Hornitos, but any brand of silver (clear) tequila will do.
Add 2 oz of water or club soda.
Add one tsp of agave nectar or simple syrup if you don’t have agave nectar.
Stir and add ice. Then enjoy and repeat.
