Espaloma Cocktail Recipe

A variation on the popular paloma cocktail, the back is an exclusive creation of Tequila Espolon. I like it just as much as the original, but it takes an entirely different approach to the grapefruit flavor. It is incredibly refreshing to drink a cocktail with fresh orange against a really nice tequila, and it is also easy to make. In this recipe, grapefruit juice and lemon-lime soda are used in place of grapefruit soda in the paloma. It’s also topped with a lime and Triple Sec mix that give it a margarita touch, and bitters add complexity. It creates a lighter tequila cocktail that’s perfect for the summer evenings.
