You are going to LOVE this easy Peach Paloma cocktail recipe! This cocktail is easy to make and even easier to drink.
I love a good margarita but sometimes I want to change up the flavors a little bit.
If you love tequila-based cocktails you should give a paloma a try! Cheers!
What is a Paloma Cocktail?
A paloma is basically the bitter older sister to the margarita.
Grapefruit juice takes center stage making a plain paloma not sweet and very citrusy. To soften the bitter bite, I decided to add some peach nectar to this paloma recipe.
This cocktail is refreshing and perfect for happy hour. Or homework time. Or after soccer. Or whenever mama needs a drink.
- 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)
How to Make A Peach Paloma
Follow these simple steps and you’ll have a scrumptious cocktail you will always remember.
1. Juice your lime into a cocktail shaker
I prefer fresh lime juice over store-bought, but use whatever is easiest.
Last summer we had a little bit of trouble finding decent limes at our local stores. And sometimes the ones they do have are really hard with very little juice.
2. Add your tequila, grapefruit juice, peach nectar, and agave
Agave is my favorite sweetener for drinks. It blends so easily and has a nice flavor that pairs really well with alcohol.
3. Shake your little heart out.
This is the fun part! Shake, shake, shake!
4. Strain your peach Paloma over ice.
I love the ice in my Paloma because it makes it taste even more refreshing!
5. Add the garnish
Top it with a splash of grapefruit soda and garnish with some lime. So easy.
Enjoy the Twist
This peach paloma recipe is bright and citrusy and a fun twist on your favorite margarita.
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.
