Paloma weekend

Tequila cocktails are having a moment, and it's about time. While you may already be a margarita fan, there's another classic tequila drink you can enjoy: the Paloma. A tequila-based cocktail that checks ALL the boxes: light, refreshing, fizzy, slightly sweet and tart, a drink that makes you feel good and that you can really enjoy.

 Translating from Spanish as 'dove', the Paloma is a tried-and-tested favourite throughout Mexico. It's unlikely to be the first Mexican cocktail that comes to mind – Margarita, anyone? – so it may come as a surprise that the Paloma is actually considered Mexico's national drink. And with the perfect combination of sweet 'n' sour flavours, why wouldn't it be?

 Its origin story is nebulous, but most accounts suggest it was invented in the 1950s. There are only urban legends about it, but no Pindar theory. It seems that good old Don Javier Delgado Corona, the patron and bartender of La Capilla in Tequila, invented it. And given the name of the place where the restaurant is located, no one has any objection.

SASHA SAYS:

"When you think of tequila, you think of Margarita. Am I right? It used to be the same for me, but not anymore! Not since I discovered the Paloma Cocktail. Nothing against the margarita, but I have been looking to expand our tequila horizons lately and this delicious cocktail is a winner. Wherever you are headed this summer, this crisp, grapefruit-flavored Paloma Cocktail, which is easy to make and quenches summer thirsts like no other, could become your new favorite tequila drink."
