How To Cocktail Video: The Paloma

Contrary to popular belief, great cocktails don't need to be made from a complex set of ingredients. In fact, one of our favorites is the Paloma, which calls for just tequila, half a lime, grapefruit soda and a pinch of salt.

The refreshing combination is perfect for a hot afternoon spent relaxing with friends. It can be found across Mexico and is becoming popular in many U.S. cities as well. To ensure you master this classic before Memorial Day weekend, we got top bartender and advisory board member Jacques Bezuidenhout to make this short video tutorial.
