The paloma is a thirst-quenching tequila cocktail that's very simple to mix up. Paloma in Spanish means "dove," and it's a fitting name for this sparking pink grapefruit drink. Though there are variations, two elements are madatory in any paloma recipe: tequila and grapefruit. It's a beautiful pairing, especially with a juicy grapefruit slice and a little fizz.
