La Paloma *

based on the recipes found in Cocktail Jen (from Esquire) and The New York Times

3oz fresh grapefruit juice
1oz fresh lime juice
simple syrup to taste
soda
Optional: 2oz tequila (I used Conmemorativo)

Most recipes recommend starting with a grapefruit soda (Jarritos is recommended with others using Fresca or Safeway Select). I like the fresh fruit as long as it is well strained to get rid of the pulp. It also allows you to make the drink lighter and less sweet (especially for the non-alcoholic version). Some serve it with a salt rim, such as the version in the photo (credit to Urban Mixer), but I leave that off and serve it in a tall glass with lots of ice.

* I've been on a bit of a tear making interesting drinks at home. Mostly non-alcoholic though alcohol could go in most of them. Anyhow, I figured I would post some of the recipes here to spread the joy of a refreshing summer drink. Where they are consciously based off the creations of others, I'll post links.
