Paloma Drink Recipe - Refreshing Low Calorie Tequila Cocktail!

We love a good margarita and are always in search of a great low calorie skinny margarita.  Mostly because if they are not handmade you can only drink so much mix before you explode.  The Paloma is a great low calorie alternative that is  simple, refreshing and easy to order a any bar.


The bitter flavor or grapefruit mixed with the bold flavor of tequila equal a surprisingly easy-drinking cocktail. In Mexico, the Paloma is actually preferred over margaritas! A traditional Paloma is made with grapefruit soda but we like this version that calls for fresh grapefruit juice. You won't be let down.


  • 2 oz Tequila Blanco
  • 4 oz Grapefruit Juice
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1/2 oz Lime Juice
(Optional: Club Soda)

How to Mix

  1. Add all ingredients to an ice-filled collins glass
  2. Stir to combine
(Optional: Top with soda and lightly stir.)


This is one of our favorite tequilas.  Highly rated and smoother than most.
