It’s Friday, people! That means catching some extra z’s (that refers to eating pizza, right?) and letting off some steam (laundering your clothes) with a cocktail in hand. It’s time to put that crappy beer down. You deserve better!  How does a refreshing citrusy cocktail sound? The Paloma is a tequila-based cocktail made with grapefruit soda and lime juice served on the rocks. If you’re not already on a beach in Mexico, after a few Palomas, you will feel like you’re swimming with the dolphins cocktail in hand, guacamole on standby. If you’re not into tequila, try subbing coconut rum. Insane. Tropical explosion. Happy weekend!
