Serrano-Spiced Paloma Cocktail

Serrano-Spiced Paloma Cocktail

A simple and fresh, spicy cocktail made with grapefruit juice and tequila. Most paloma cocktails call for grapefruit soda, but I lightened this one up with club soda and agave nectar.

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice (which is about 1 lime, juiced)
  • ½ teaspoon light agave nectar or 1 teaspoon simple syrup
  • 1 thinly sliced serrano round (1/8th to ¼th inch wide, a little goes a long way!)
  • 2 ounces fresh grapefruit juice (which is less than 1 grapefruit worth of juice)
  • 2 ounces silver or blanco tequila
  • 1½ ounces grapefruit-flavored club soda or plain club soda
  • 2 teaspoons kosher and/or sea salt
  • Lime wedge, for lining the rim
  • Small grapefruit wedges, for garnish
