Blood Orange Paloma

by James Stevenson

When I go out to a Mexican restaurant I love to order a Paloma. I am obsessed with this drink and have been looking at making one at home for a while. While shopping in the drug store last week I saw a bottle of Squirt soda and decided I had to make an at home version of a Paloma ASAP. So, I decided to use some blood oranges I had left and some fresh grapefruit juice to take this version over the top. This cocktail is amazing and I could drink these for days! This is the perfect drink to serve at a party! So cheers to you because after this drink your day will only get better!
