“The Paloma is often viewed as the most popular cocktail in Mexico, and is now a hugely popular UK summer serve, owing to its refreshing balance of sweetness and citrus,” said Tom Singleton, Business Director at Franklin & Sons.
“The Paloma is also easy to make at home using just four ingredients – the ideal go-to for a relaxed, hot summer’s day.”
Franklin & Sons, creators of mixers since 1886, and makers of the Pink Grapefruit Soda featured in the Paloma, have included a recipe for the drink where the lime juice gives it a sharp taste which is balanced by the Agave and Pink Grapefruit Soda, to create a delicious, citrusy and refreshingly good drink, perfect for a hot summer’s day.
