Mezcal Paloma

Mezcal Paloma

Margaritas are the popular choice with Mexican food, but if a paloma is on the menu, that’s what I’m ordering. Palomas are typically made with tequila but I prefer using a smoky mezcal. It gives the drink an unexpectedly smooth bite that works well with the sweetness of the grapefruit.

Makes 1 drink

  • 2.5 ounces fresh grapefruit juice
  • 0.5 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 2.5 ounces mezcal
  • club soda
  • grapefruit garnish
  1. Combine grapefruit and lime juices with agave nectar in a glass.
  2. Stir in mezcal. You can use white tequila if you don’t have mezcal on hand.
  3. Fill the glass with ice. Top with club soda and grapefruit garnish.
