In the homeland of tequila, the Paloma Cocktail is queen. Grapefruit, the drink's signature ingredient, is one of the most widely harvested fruits on American soil. A real beauty of this drink is that if getting freshly squeezed juice is too much of a hassle, a good pink grapefruit soda will do the trick.
