Test Kitchen Notes

A paloma typically calls for tequila, lime, grapefruit, and soda—but here, Esteban Castillo of Chicano Eats decided to give the classic cocktail a little tropical-inspired twist. A splash of pineapple juice adds a sweet, gently tangy layer to the cocktail that plays really nicely with the bright, citrus-forward flavors of Fever-Tree’s Sparkling Pink Grapefruit. It’s a super-simple drink to mix up (simply add the ingredients to a glass, stir, and sip) and tastes like a perfect day at the beach.

This recipe is shared in partnership with Fever-Tree. —The Editors

What You'll Need
  • 3 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 4 ounces Fever-Tree Sparkling Pink Grapefruit
  • Fresh lime slice, for garnish
  1. Add the pineapple juice, lime juice, tequila, and sea salt to an ice-filled highball glass or cantarito (clay cup).
  2. Top the glass off with the Sparkling Pink Grapefruit mixer, give it a stir, and garnish with a slice of lime.

Fantastic drink recipe! Refreshing and not overly sweet! Fever tree sparkling grapefruit is impossible to find in Massachusetts.
