I like the Paloma cocktail because it is very refreshing without being overly sweet. I add my own twist to it with a little orange liqueur that adds another layer of flavor and gives it more depth.

Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 3 ounces mezcal
    • 2 ounces orange liqueur (triple sec), such as Cointreau
    • 4 ounces grapefruit juice
    • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
    • 1 splash club or lime soda (depending on desired sweetness)
    • Lime wedges (optional)

Preparation

Place the sugar on a flat plate. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of each glass and dip it into the sugar to coat the rim.

Fill glasses with ice cubes.

Pour mezcal, orange liqueur, and juices into the glasses. Top with soda and garnish with lime wedge.
