Do you like cocktails? I know I do! Have you ever had a paloma cocktail? A paloma typically consists of tequila and grapfruit soda. However, today, I want to share my own twist on that classic recipe. This tasty vodka paloma cocktail recipe contains Jarritos, Mineragua, Tito’s vodka, and fresh citrus juice. It is a delicious cocktail full of tangy citrusy flavor!

What is a Paloma?

As I mentioned, a Paloma typically consists of tequila, grapefruit soda, and perhaps a squeeze of lime. Though the cocktail I am sharing with you today is inspired by a Paloma, it is a bit different. For instance, I use vodka instead of tequila. Further, I add different citrus. In addition to a squeeze of lime, I also add fresh lemon, orange, and grapefruit juice. Finally, I enjoy this cocktail in a glass rimmed with chamoy and Tajin. The result is so delicious. This may quickly become your new favorite cocktail!

Great for parties

What I love most about this cocktail is that its great for big groups. For instance, I add a bottle of Jarritos grapefruit soda and one bottle of Mineragua sparkling water to the pitcher. I also add the fresh citrus juice, and the vodka. Give it all a good stir. And ready! Now you have a pitcher of cocktails for your loved ones. Therefore, this drink is fantastic when you’re hosting people, such as for a big game, a birthday gathering, etc.

Vodka Paloma Cocktail Recipe with Tito’s Vodka

I honestly do not have enough good things to say about this cocktail! This drink combines the flavors of tart lime, sweet orange, and bitter grapefruit. Consequently, they all come together beautifully. Plus, the spicy saltiness of the Tajin rim balances it all out so exquisitely. As a result, this is a drink that you take your time savoring. Additionally, I like to taste my alcohol when I enjoy a cocktail. That is to say, I want the right balance. For example, I do not want a drink that is too sweet. I also do not want my drink to taste like rubbing alcohol. I want smooth spirits! Therefore, that is where Tito’s vodka comes in. It is smooth enough where its flavor comes through in just the right way. Certainly, this recipe may very well become your new favorite cocktail!
