Hot Take

Pull up a barstool, my friends, and immerse yourself in the delightful contradiction that is the Classic Paloma. Here’s a drink that politely asks the ever-popular Margarita to hold its earrings while it takes center stage and grooves in a riot of sweet and tart citrus bliss. What’s that, you say? You find Margaritas too sweet? Well strap on your sombrero because the Paloma is serving tequila sophistication with a tantalizing tartness that makes your tastebuds tango.
