This loose take on the classic Paloma cocktail features one of my favorite flavors in the world: ginger. Both the ginger and the sweetness in this drink come from Domaine de Canton, a ginger liqueur that really should be a fixture in your home bar. It’s easy to find in most liquor stores, and if you’re going to put sugar water in your drinks anyway, it might as well be boozy and gingery, right? (Right.) Ruby-red grapefruit is in season right now, so it’s available at most grocery stores and markets. Of course, you could substitute bottled juice, but fresh citrus does so much more for cocktails than the pre-bottled stuff. —Emily Farris
