If you have never heard of a Paloma, then get ready to have a new favorite drink. The exact origin of the Paloma is a little hazy but it is believed to have been created in the 1860’s and named after a popular Mexican folk song called “La Paloma” which means “the dove”. No matter where the drink came from or how long people have been enjoying it, we know why it is so good.

The Paloma is a little sweet, a little salty, sour and also a little bit bitter. It has it all! The lime juice and fresh grapefruit juice are what give the Paloma the sour, citrus taste. Grapefruit juice is also to blame for the bitterness in the drink (but it’s bitter in a very good way!). The agave gives it a sweetness that is unmatched. And, the salt, obviously is what makes the drink salty. Don’t discount that pinch of salt though. It is definitely needed to tie the whole drink together in perfect unison.

Paloma’s are usually made with tequila but we have created a non-alcoholic version that is ideal for anyone. Essentially, if you are a grapefruit fan, you will love sipping on a big, chilled Paloma. So give this recipe a try and see why this drink has been a favorite for so long!
