A Blood Orange Paloma is the perfect cocktail for the summer. Replace your margarita with this refreshing paloma cocktail that is perfect with a lime!
SO, it has been a tough week around here and it is only Tuesday! My office is in the process of moving and we have a ton of activities going on at home. I’m powering through and looking forward to the weekend when I can sit back and enjoy a Blood Orange Paloma on the deck.
A paloma is a tequila based drink that is usually mixed with a combination of grapefruit juice and club soda or a grapefruit flavored soda like Fresca. You serve it over ice with a lime wedge. I am in love with blood orange soda so I delicided to substitute it for the grapefruit and this amazingly refreshing cocktail was born.
You could definitely salt or sugar the rim of the glass if you want. I prefer mine with just a lime wedge. One thing is for certain: this is going to replace a margarita as your new favorite Mexican Paloma drink!
What is your favorite summer cocktail? Do you like to change up the flavors in drinks to add in your favorite ingredient?
