Sunday, May 22, is World Paloma Day and we here at Guilty Eats want to help you celebrate! The Mexican cocktail is traditionally made with tequila, lime juice and grapefruit soda and served in a highball glass. However, today, we are showcasing some fun variations of this cocktail!
Tres Agaves Tequila is a USDA certified organic spirit that is organic and gluten-free. The single-source 100% blue agave tequila comes in three varieties, Blanco, Reposado and Añejo. The company shared three different takes on the classic Paloma that we think you will enjoy. We recommend you try to find Jarritos soda for the most authentic tasting drink.
