A Paloma with a Peachy Twist
A Peach Paloma is one of my favorite tequila cocktails to make at home.
I love a good margarita but sometimes I want something a little more creative. A paloma is basically the bitter older sister to the margarita. And the peach gives it a wonderful, fruity surprise.
Here, grapefruit juice takes center stage making this paloma with peach recipe not too sweet and very citrusy. The addition of peach nectar helps to soften the bitter bite.

With only a few easy steps, this peach cocktail is a good drink for beginning cocktail makers.
This grapefruit tequila cocktail is refreshing and perfect for happy hour. Or homework time. Or after soccer. Or for an afternoon with friends. Or a backyard summer party.
- Silver Tequila
- Grapefruit juice (I love the Trader Joe’s version but any will work)
- Grapefruit soda (I chose an Italian soda but Jarritos will work too)
- Peach nectar
- Fresh lime
- Agave (not pictured)
When I’m making a classic Paloma cocktail I like to skip the store-bought juice and grapefruit soda and use fresh grapefruit juice with club soda.
Grapefruit soda is very common though. And using store-bought grapefruit juice keeps things super quick.
If you can’t find any peach nectar, you can also use the juice from canned peaches.
I prefer fresh lime juice over store-bought, but use whatever is easiest.
How to Make A Peach Paloma
Follow these simple steps and you’ll have a scrumptious cocktail you will always remember.
Juice your lime into a cocktail shaker
Add the tequila, grapefruit juice, peach nectar, and agave.
Shake your little heart out. Shake, shake, shake!
Strain your peach Paloma over ice.
Top it with a splash of grapefruit soda and garnish with some lime. So easy.
A salty rim would also be delish, if you like that sort of thing. I’m much too mess-averse to deal with rimmed cocktails for the most part.
Add this to your cocktail arsenal to impress your friends. It sounds like an exotic drink when really, it’s basically a margarita.
