The sparkling Paloma cocktail is a delightful variation on a classic margarita - tart, sweet, and with just the right balance of fruity flavors. This refined sugar-free version uses monk fruit and lime juice to add a hint of sweetness, while fresh grapefruit juice adds a kick.
Himalayan rock salt, fine
1 large lime, cut into wedges
6 oz. fresh pink grapefruit juice
3 oz. blanco tequila
1 T. fresh lime juice
Garnish: Lime wheels and/or twisted grapefruit peel
Optional: Lightly sweeten each drink with 1-2 teaspoons of powdered monkfruit simple syrup (see Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri or Frozen Pina Colada recipes for instructions) or agave syrup, if desired.
Pour the Himalayan salt onto a shallow dish. Wipe the rim of each glass with a wedge of lime and place the wet edge into the salt to line the rim. For best results, rotate and firmly press the rim into the salt several times.
Fill each glass with ice. Divide the grapefruit juice, tequila, and lime juice between the two glasses and give the mixture a quick stir to combine.
To serve, top off each glass with some club soda and garnish with a lime wheel and/or a piece of grapefruit rind. Enjoy!
