E-Z Paloma

E-Z Paloma 1.000

Julia Ewan - The Washington Post; Glassware From Crate and Barrel

Dec 3, 2008

In Jalisco, Mexico, the locals drink Palomas, not margaritas. And most of the time, their Palomas are made with tequila and Squirt soda. Replace the Squirt with Izze or GUS grapefruit soda, and you have an easy, delicious margarita alternative.

Servings: 1
  • Kosher salt
  • Ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 3 to 4 ounces grapefruit soda, preferably Izze brand
  • 1 lime wedge, for garnish


Salt the rim of a highball glass, then fill the glass with ice. Add the tequila and

grapefruit soda; stir gently. Garnish with the lime wedge.
