Ingredients for the Cranberry Kiss Sparkling Paloma

  • Cenote Tequila Reposado: Cenote Reposado is aged three months in American Oak Barrels, delivering a harmonious palette of vanilla, wood, spice, and vegetable. This spirit is a reposado so it boasts some earthiness and smokier notes. 
  • Pink grapefruit juice: a splash of pink grapefruit juice adds a touch of tart notes to this cocktail with slightly sweet flavors. You can pick some up from your local grocery store. 
  • Cranberry juice cocktail: the slightly tart and sweet notes balance perfectly with the reposado tequila. 
  • Lime juice: fresh squeezed lime juice is best, but bottled lime juice will work too. 
  • Agave: a squeeze of agave syrup will add some subtly sweet flavors. Honey or simple syrup can be an alternative for this ingredient. 
  • Champagne: top this cocktail with a bubbly finish. Choose your favorite champagne (or brut) to add to the drink. 
  • Sparkling water: in addition to the champagne, pour in your preferred sparkling water for some more bubbles.
  • Sugared cranberries and rosemary, grapefruit peel: it’s optional but highly encouraged to garnish this paloma with sugared cranberries, rosemary, and a grapefruit peel.

How to Make the Cranberry Kiss Sparkling Paloma

Time to make this delicious cocktail. Start by adding Cenote Tequila Reposado, the pink grapefruit juice, cranberry juice, the lime juice, and agave syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice.
