This Poolside Paloma Recipe is the perfect cocktail for a super hot summer day! It’s the perfect balance between tart and sweet and very refreshing. I first started making this recipe last year on our first trip to Rosemary Beach. We had a great location in a beautiful house right off the community pool. We were looking for something fun to switch to from our usual Margarita Recipe. I started playing around with different concoctions and the Poolside Paloma was born.
Poolside Paloma Recipe
- 4-5 limes juiced (about 1/3 cup)
- Grapefruit juice – equal parts to lime juice (about 1/3 cup)
- 1TBSP Agave – more to taste
- 2 ounces silver tequila
- Sparkling water – I prefer Topo Chico but you can use any you like
Combine first 4 ingredients into a shaker and shake well. Pour into a glass filled with ice and fill about 3/4 up. Fill the remainder of the glass with the sparkling water. Give it a stir and enjoy! Makes 2 servings
*you can go a little heavier on grapefruit juice than lime juice if preferred
*If you prefer to have something on your rim you can add salt or sugar depending on your taste preference. Mint and a grapefruit slice are also a nice garnish.
*Agave can be substituted with simple syrup or honey. Or it can be omitted if you like a tart taste.
