PATRÓN Paloma Creativity!

A delicious PATRÓN Paloma can be as simple as PATRÓN Reposado and your favorite grapefruit soda, however, the simplicity of this favored classic allows it infinite possibilities. Below you’ll find deliciously creative takes on this two ingredient cocktail that plays up the notes found in reposado tequila, as well as ingredients chosen by worldly bartenders.

Whether you are thinking locally or globally, there’s no wrong way to add a touch of creative energy to a PATRÓN Paloma. Try your hand at these recipes to see which best fits your mood, or head to your local market to see how you can add your own spin. The Paloma remains a classic because of its simplistic nature, and its ability to be adapted all around the world. We wish you happy mixing and remember, great Palomas begin with PATRÓN Reposado!
