La Paloma Drink Recipe

Using the right grapefruits and balance of premium ingredients is critical to truly capture the essence of the La Paloma drink. At it’s best, the Paloma cocktail should be very grapefruit forward, accented by a more acidic note, and rounded off with a hint of sweetness. It is a delicate balancing act. Luckily, our turnkey mixer does it all for you.
