Made simply of tequila, lime juice, salt, and grapefruit soda… it’s a sipping drink that I personally have trouble with… well, sipping. Both refreshing and delicious, it’s hard for me to just sip it.

Here’s a short video of me making the Paloma cocktail:

See? Easy peasy to make. Easy peasy to drink.

No wonder it’s so popular! LOL.

Let me know in the comments below if you’ve made one, like it or just whatever you think.
