1. The Paloma
This drink is refreshing because it has grapefruit juice in it. You can sip on a hot summer day and cool off while you enjoy a cocktail. What could be better than that?
¼ cup tequila
¼ cup club soda
¼ cup grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
Coat the rim of a cocktail glass with sugar. Add the grapefruit and lime juices with the sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the tequila and the club soda and stir. Fill the cup with ice and serve garnished with a wedge of grapefruit.
