We’re celebrating Paloma Day by talking to one of the founders of Tequila Tromba, Nick Reid all about Mexico’s favourite tequila cocktail.
The Spanish word for Dove, the drink is believed to have originated sometime around the 1950s, but as Reid points out, is one of the simplest drinks to make at home.
Special thanks to Nick Reid from Tequila Tromba and Australian bartender Lou Dare (for making a Paloma for the video)
