La Paloma Cocktail

Contrary to popular belief, the margarita is not the most requested tequila drink in Mexico… it’s La Paloma, “the dove”! With refreshing citrus juices with good quality tequila, this cocktail makes for a perfect drink anytime. I used one of my Ruby Red grapefruits that I picked in the Rio Grande Valley. It was the best combination of sweet, sour, and bubbly…this is a recipe you’re going to want to quadruple…for yourself.

Ingredients (for 1 serving)

  • 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup club soda
  • Optional* salt for rim


  • Combine 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice in a cocktail shaker
  • Pour in 1/4 cup tequila, add ice, shake
  • Pour in glass, top off with 1/4 cup club soda. Garnish with grapefruit wedge or rind
