"Paloma" means “dove” in Spanish, which then means this drink’s name translates to “little dove.” This Paloma interpretation from April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman's now-shuttered modern taco restaurant and bar Salvation Taco swaps in vodka for tequila and adds a rim of vanilla-flecked salt but otherwise leaves the original intact.
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1/2 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
- Jarritos grapefruit soda, chilled, to top
- Garnish: vanilla-flecked salt rim
- Garnish: lemon twist
Rim a Collins glass with vanilla-flecked salt.
Add the vodka and lime juice to a shaker with ice and shake.
Strain into the prepared glass over fresh ice.
Top with the soda.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
