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.

Ingredients to make a peach paloma recipe.
What you need to make a Paloma with peach.

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.

You can use simple syrup or this no-cook simple syrup hack if you don’t have agave.

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.
