Choosing Your Tequila

Choose a blanco or silver to bring the flavor profile you want for this drink. Here are a few of our favorites:

Casamigos Blanco

Patrón Silver Tequila

Cazadores Tequila Blanco

1800 Tequila Blanco

Paloma Vs. Margarita

A Paloma is made with grapefruit juice and lime. The citrus stands out from the grapefruit.

The Margarita is made with lime juice and Cointreau or Triple Sec. We have a wonderful skinny margarita recipe that’s perfect if you’re in the mood!

Why is it called a Paloma?

While there is no exact evidence of where the name came from, some people believe its name came from a popular folk song, La Paloma, composed in the 1860s in Mexico. 

Benefits of Sipping a Summer Frozen Paloma Drink

This frozen beverage carries a number of benefits compared to other alcoholic choices. 

Tequila is made from agave nectar, making it low in sugar while still sweet. You can opt for a no added sugar version of this cocktail by using something like Truvia as the sweetener.

Tequila also contains healthy bacteria called probiotics that aid in gut health. This drink actually helps lower the glucose index in the body and spikes insulin, making it a better choice for diabetics who want to sip on a summery cocktail.

Cool yourself down this summer with a hot choice! You and your guests will love the refreshing flavor and benefits of the frozen Paloma. The spritz of citrus in a slushy drink will delight your senses.
