The Story Behind The Blood Orange Paloma
'Tis the season for blood orange soda. When I came across a batch at the grocery store, I knew I needed to bring it home and utilize it in a cocktail. If you've never had blood orange juice before, I find the flavors of this wonderful fruit are very similar to that of a grapefruit, and that means it will be perfect in a Paloma, the classic grapefruit soda and tequila cocktail from Mexico. This is such a simple cocktail that can be made in seconds yet has the delicious balance of a much more advanced and involved preparation. You'll make it all summer long.
