    [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
