More About This Drink

Before we jump into a little description of the Classic Paloma recipe, here are some other delicious tequila cocktail recipes you'll probably enjoy just as much: the Tequila Sunrise, the Pink Lemonade Margarita, the Pink Cadillac Margarita, the Classic Margarita, and the Paloma Mimosa. As far as where the Paloma cocktail recipe comes from, according to Tales of the Cocktail Foundation, "The history of the drink is obscure — no one knows for sure who invented the Paloma." The page does note, however, that "Some credit the legendary Don Javier Delgado Corona, owner of the beloved La Capilla bar in the aptly-named town of Tequila in Jalisco, Mexico." The Paloma cocktail wikipedia page adds that Paloma is Spanish for "dove." It also notes that "This drink is most commonly prepared by mixing tequila with a grapefruit-flavored soda such as Fresca, Squirt, or Jarritos and served on the rocks with a lime wedge." For our version, we use a few different brands, and think it's worth experimenting with all of them. The Paloma isn't as popular as the Classic Margarita cocktail recipe in the U.S., but it's definitely achieved all star cocktail status in Mexico.
