A paloma is a refreshing tequila-based cocktail and it just so happens to be the most popular tequila cocktail in Mexico (that’s right, even more popular than the beloved Margarita). There are many variations, but it’s made with tequila, grapefruit and lime and is sometimes finished off with a salt rim.
There are many theories about its origins, but guides suggest that this cocktail was created by infamous bartender and bar owner, Don Javier Delgado Corona in Tequila, Mexico in the early 1860’s.
It’s no surprise that the Paloma is the most popular cocktail in Mexico. It’s salty, sweet, and tart. Hitting all the right flavor notes for a refreshing mixed drink, and it’s especially delicious in the heat of the summer!

This tequila undergoes a process of allowing 100% Premium Blue Agave tequila to rest for six months in white oak bourbon barrels creating an enhanced, yet mellow ﬂavor.
