It is said to be named after La Paloma (the dove), a popular folk song in Mexico. The combination of lemon juice, tequila, and grapefruit juice creates a tangy and slightly bitter flavor profile, balanced out by the addition of soda water and a touch of salt. The cocktail is typically served over ice, making it perfect for a hot summer day. The grapefruit juice gives the drink a beautiful pink color, making it visually appealing as well. Whether enjoyed at a beachside bar or at a backyard barbecue, the Paloma is a popular choice among cocktail enthusiasts and is often considered a more refreshing alternative to the classic Margarita.
