La Paloma


Let's have a cocktail, shall we?

Summer is the perfect time for a refreshing drink, and there's definitely nothing like a La Paloma on a hot June day. Made with Mexican grapefruit soda and tequila, this drink would go perfectly with some yummy carnitas tacos or marinated halibut on the grill. Think margarita with a fruity twist...yum!

Happy Thursday!
