Prep time



Fresh, spicy paloma cocktail made with grapefruit juice and tequila. Most paloma cocktail recipes call for grapefruit soda, but I lightened this one up with club soda and agave nectar.


  • 1 Ounce Fresh Lime Juice

  • 1/2 Tsp Light Agave Nector

  • 1 Thinly Sliced Serrano Pepper

  • 2 Ounces Fresh Grapefruit Juice

  • 2 Ounces Tequila

  • 1 1/2 Ounces Grapefruit Flavored Club Soda

  • Salt Rim and Garnish
  • 2 Tsp Sea Salt

  • Lime Wedge

  • Small Grapefruit Wedges


  • First, prepare your cocktail glass: Pour the sea salt onto a small plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of your glass and roll the edge of the glass onto the salt. Fill the prepared glass with ice.
  • In a cocktail shaker or mason jar, muddle together the lime juice, agave nectar and one small slice of Serrano pepper. Fill the shaker with ice, then pour in the grapefruit juice and tequila.
  • Put the lid on your shaker/jar and shake until the mixture is thoroughly chilled. Pour the blend into your prepared glass. Top off the cocktail with club soda. Garnish with a small wedge of grapefruit.


  • No agave nectar at home? You can make simple syrup by combining equal parts water and sugar in a small jar with a lid. Put on the lid and shake until the sugar is dissolved in the water.
