Rumor has it that it’s the Paloma, not the Margarita, that is Mexico’s most beloved and revered drink. The best Paloma (Spanish for “dove”) is as beautiful as it is easy to make. The classic light drink combines tequila, fresh lime juice, and sweet grapefruit. We’ve added Giffard Pamplemousse Liqueur to layer in the bright citrus notes. One sip of this refreshing drink will have you cooing for another.
