Cocktail Hour: Citrus Paloma

Ask for the perfect summer drink and many will answer, the Paloma. A traditional Mexican cocktail, the Paloma is also known to many as the "lazy man's margarita." What we love about it: it's sweet, a little sour, and a little salty. This particular Citrus Paloma recipe incorporates freshly squeezed orange, lemon, and light natural soda.
