Cinco De Mayo Cocktail - The Paloma

Spanish for "dove," the Paloma is a popular cocktail in Mexico made with grapefruit soda. I have never had a Paloma cocktail but my sister told me about it the other day and I am actually shocked that I have never heard of it....where have I been?

Here is the classic recipe...

2 oz of white tequila
5-6 oz Mexican grapefruit soda
half a lime
pinch of salt

For a low calorie and zero sugar option, my sister uses Fresca grapefruit soda instead of the Mexican grapefruit soda and she adds a splash of grapefruit juice. You could also substitute vodka if you are not a tequila fan...Sounds yummers and I can't wait to try it this weekend!
