Look, I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm far more likely to have a can of pamplemousse-flavored LaCroix on hand than a fresh, juicy grapefruit. So when the craving for a paloma came over me, I found myself googling "how to make a paloma with LaCroix." Turns out, it's easy and crazy-refreshing to use flavored sparkling water in this grapefruit-tequila cocktail. In fact, this cocktail recipe is about as easy to whip up as it is to drink — so fair warning! If you're looking for a light, crisp cocktail for lounging in your backyard or at the beach on a summer day, this is it. Get the recipe, ahead!
- 5 oz. Pamplemousse LaCroix
2 oz. tequila
1 oz. fresh lime juice
