Lemonade Paloma

It’s the weekend! For me that means I’m less than one week away from college graduation. How did that happen?! For most people it’s a beautiful Saturday in June. Whoever you are, try this drink (it’s also good sans tequila) and drink up! Cheers to being alive on such a wonderful day.

The inspiration for this recipe is a paloma, which is tequila, grapefruit + lime juice, and club soda. I love the drink, but the extra tang from lemonade makes the drink more sweet and more sour at the same time. Delicious!



Lemonade Paloma

serves 2


3 ounces tequila

6 ounces grapefruit juice

6 ounces lemonade

1 ounce lime juice


2 wedges grapefruit


Mix all ingredients except grapefruit wedges in a cocktail and shake until combined. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, mixing directly in the glasses works just fine for this recipe. Pour over into glasses over ice. Garnish with a grapefruit wedge and serve. Tastes like summer!
