RECIPE: Paloma Mexican Cocktail

As we’ve just introduced a range of Mexican food and drinks to our line up here at American Soda, I figured it would be a good time to kick off some Mexican recipes and I reckon a good place to start is with tequila and Squirt Grapefruit soda. These two wonderful drinks combine with other ingredients to create an authentic Mexican drink – Paloma.

  • 2 oz tequila blanco (silver)
  • 5-6 oz Squirt Grapefruit soda
  • Juice of half a lime (about 1/2 oz)
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Combine tequila, lime juice, and a pinch of salt into a highball or Collins glass.
  2. Add ice and top with grapefruit soda. Stir gently.
  3. Throw in the spent lime shell for garnish.

Now sit back, put your feet up and relax while you enjoy this genuine taste of Mexico. 🙂
