How to Make an Italian Margarita – Paloma Cocktail Recipe 🍸

This twist on a traditional margarita makes the most refreshing cocktail you need in your life!

Margaritas are one of my absolute favorite drinks! Recently, my sister introduced me to the Paloma, a twist on the classic margarita that incorporates Italian grapefruit soda. It’s so refreshing and the prettiest shade of pink. Serve with a salted rim and a slice of grapefruit for garnish.


  • 2 oz tequila blanco 
  • 1/4 oz fresh squeezed lime juice 
  • 4 oz Italian grapefruit soda
  • Optional: Salted rim and grapefruit wedge garnish


  1. Begin by rimming a rocks glass with salt.
  2. Fill the glass with ice. Pour tequila, lime juice and grapefruit soda over and garnish with a grapefruit wedge.
  3. Salute!
