Freek’s Mill Paloma

Tequila , Modern Classics

This tasty Paloma version at Freek’s Mill in New York City keeps the tequila and lime juice but turns the rest of the drink on its head. Instead of grapefruit soda, pamplemousse liqueur, a splash of Contratto bitter (an apéritif similar to Campari), plus cava provide the right flavor and effervescence. And rather than a pinch of salt, as is customary in a Mexican Paloma, this drink takes a few drops of saline to add that mouthwatering hint.
