[Photo by SCM] Drink This. After a busy and hopefully eventful weekend, I am sure the prospect of a full work week ahead of you is a dismal concept. However, one of our favorite drinks, the Paloma, should help the week cruise by quickly enough. The recipe is below. Bottoms up GofG readers.


2 oz blanco or reposado tequila

6 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice

splash of melon liqueur (Midori)

splash of soda water

basil for garnish


Fill a highball glass with ice and add the tequila, melon liqueur, and grapefruit juice

Add the soda water on top and garnish with pieces of chopped basil
