The Paloma, also known as “the working man’s drink”, is a tequila-based cocktail. This drink is most commonly prepared by mixing tequila, lime juice, and a grapefruit-flavored soda. This has been known to be Mexico’s favorite cocktail. For those that don’t know, Paloma is the Spanish word for “dove.”
