Pomegranate-Grapefruit Paloma

Pomegranate-Grapefruit Paloma

How have I not made this cocktail before? This cocktail reminds me of the flavors in this Pomegranate Grapefruit Campari Cocktail, but instead of the bitter Italian aperitif, this cocktail is spiked with aged and smooth Exotico reposado tequila from Mexico. It’s the flavors of summer and winter all wrapped up in one festive cocktail.

As you know, I love a good Moscow mule and this paloma also includes ginger beer for a fizzy spicy hint of ginger.

This ruby-red Christmas cocktail is simple and elegant, garnished with mint and pomegranate seeds.

Equal parts sweet pomegranate juice and tangy grapefruit juice, spiked with tequila, and topped with ginger beer. One sip of this cocktail and you’ll be transported to a magical tropical paradise in the North Pole.
