pink and orange citrus paloma- the most refreshing, pretty drink!

I have a complicated relationship with a few different beverages. I love margaritas, but I can’t drink too much tequila- and many tequila drinks are sickeningly sweet and end up being too heavy on a hot day. These pink and orange citrus palomas are delicious, easy, and perfect for a hot spring or summer – plus they aren’t overly alcoholic, so you can enjoy sipping one or two without being completely faced- if that’s your sort of thing.

This drink has a hint of smoky sweetness from the tequila, and a tart kick from fresh grapefruit and orange slices. There’s bit of Lillet to sweeten up the drink- and club soda to give it a bubbly kick. If you wanted to make a non-alcoholic version, omit the tequila and lillet, and replace with a use a dry ginger soda with a splash of white grape juice.
