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!

2 oz tequila
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
Grapefruit soda (use San Pellegrino Pompelmo if you have any self respect)
Pour some salt on a plate. Rub the rim of your glass with grapefruit slice and dip rim in the salt. Combine tequila and lime juice in glass. Fill glass with ice then top off with soda. Serve with grapefruit slice.
