The paloma (Spanish for ‘dove’), also known as “the working man’s drink”, is a tequila-based cocktail.
Traditionally, grapefruit soda is used, and Jarritos Toronha has typically been the brand of choice. It’s not too hard to find this Mexican soda, especially if you look at markets that sell international food or shop online.
A simple Paloma is a two-ingredient cocktail consisting only of tequila and grapefruit-flavored soda. A more complex variant of the Paloma is the cantarito, which in addition to lime juice, also has lemon juice and orange juice.
The Paloma included in the list of IBA official cocktails.
