Paloma (original source)
2 oz Reposado Tequila
½ oz Lime Juice (extra lime juice needed to rim the glass)
Grapefruit Soda
Garnish – Grapefruit Twist
How To:
Rim a glass by dipping it into lime juice then into salt. Add ice to the glass then combine the tequila, lime juice and a Pinch of salt into the glass. Top off the concoction with the grapefruit juice and finally garnish with the grapefruit twist (however that is for a more aesthetic look than useful for the drink overall).
