Paloma Cocktail

Move over, margarita! The Paloma is Mexico's favorite cocktail– while no one knows for sure who invented it, some say that Don Javier Delgado Corona, owner of the famed La Capilla bar in Jalisco, Mexico takes the credit. The Casa Paloma gets its sparkling flavor from grapefruit juice, sparkling water and a squeeze of lime.
