The Paloma is the cocktail to stop you from ever ordering a Margarita again! Tequila, lime, and fresh grapefruit create a bright and bittersweet drink that is best enjoyed with a salt-rimmed glass.

Paloma Cocktail Recipe


2 oz Casamigos Tequila Blanco
½ oz fresh squeezed lime juice
2 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
¼ oz agave
2 oz sparkling water
Garnish: coarse rimming salt, fresh rosemary, grapefruit wedges


  1. Take your uniquely shaped rocks glass and rub a grapefruit wedge along the rim. Then dip the rim into the coarse salt. Add the lime juice, grapefruit juice, and agave to the glass.
  2. Add a scoop of ice, pour in the tequila, and top with sparkling water. Add the fresh rosemary sprig into the cocktail and another grapefruit wedge to the rim.
