First, you'll need to make your salt rim. On a small plate or flat surface scatter a couple of tablespoons of kosher salt. Then, cut a lime wedge and wipe it around the rim of the glass, turn the glass upside down, and then gently swirl the rim in the kosher salt, then set aside
2 tbsp Kosher salt, 1 Lime wedge
In a cocktail shaker, add a handful of ice cubes, then add tequila, fresh grapefruit juice, fresh lime juice, and agave nectar. Secure the lid on your cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for approximately 20 seconds
Ice cubes, 50 ml Tequila Blanco, 50 ml Grapefruit juice, 15 ml Lime juice, 7½ ml Agave syrup
Now, add ice cubes to your cocktail glass and, using a Hawthorne strainer, pour your cocktail into your glass. Top up your glass with club soda and garnish with a fresh grapefruit wedge
Club soda, Grapefruit wedge
Serve and enjoy your Paloma cocktails - cheers!
For an extra zingy taste of grapefruit, try grapefruit soda instead of club soda
Always use fresh lime juice, store-bought doesn't have the same fresh citrus taste that freshly squeezed does
Got leftover limes? Don't leave them destined for the bin, slice and then freeze them, you can then use them in your cocktails
