The Paloma Cocktail has already convinced one or two critics with its taste. The taste is a great interplay of sweet and tart-sour notes. Contrary to what one might think at first glance, the sweet notes are not in the foreground, but rather the tart and fruity ones. This makes the cocktail not suitable for everyone. If you are looking for a sweet cocktail, you should try the Malibu Sunrise or the Tequila Sunrise. However, if you are looking for a tart and sour drink, the Paloma Cocktail is the perfect choice. Try the long drink yourself and convince yourself of its unique taste!

Why the Paloma Cocktail is so popular

The Paloma Cocktail is a thirst-quenching tequila cocktail that is very easy to mix. This long drink is one of Mexico’s favourite drinks and has also won great recognition worldwide. Today, you can order and enjoy a high-quality Paloma cocktail in almost any cocktail bar.

By the way: “Paloma” is the Spanish word for “dove”. Therefore, it is also a fitting name for this sparkling grapefruit drink. Although there are different variations, two ingredients are indispensable in any Paloma recipe: tequila and grapefruit. There are many different recipe variations that always consist of tequila and a grapefruit drink. The other ingredients used can vary greatly. Try our basic recipe first and then make your own variation. For example, add a dash of sugar syrup to the glass for more sweetness or more lime juice if you want a more tart drink. You will be surprised.
