Cook's Note:

Almost any blanco tequila works well in combination with the grapefruit and you may also see this cocktail with grapefruit juice and a splash of soda instead of a grapefruit soda like Squirt(R), Fresca(R), or Mexican Jarritos(R).

All I can say is WOW!!! This tequila cocktail is awesome. Similar to a Margarita but more refreshing! I made a pitcher of the Palomas and my Cinco de Mayo was a success. I will be making this drink again. Read More
