The paloma (Spanish for "dove") is a tequila-based cocktail, most commonly prepared by mixing tequila with a grapefruit-flavored soda such as Fresca, Squirt, or Jarritos and served on the rocks with a lime wedge. Optionally, the glass may also be rimmed with salt.
Alternatively, the grapefruit soda can be replaced with fresh white or red grapefruit juice (jugo de toronja), club soda (sugar optional), and fresh-squeezed lime juice.
The paloma is the most popular tequila-based cocktail in Mexico. The first published recipe for The Paloma is attributed to Evan Harrison in a pamphlet entitled, "Popular Cocktails of The Rio Grande."
