Cocktail & Other Recipes By Spirit Tequila & Mezcal Cocktails

Radler Paloma

The alfresco rooftop at 8UP Drinkery & Kitchen in Louisville, Ky., may be an ideal location to sip this grapefruit cooler, but it tastes just as good mixed at home. This riff on the Mexican classic makes a match of tequila and Stiegl radler, which get rounded out by fresh grapefruit and lime juices. The finished product is tall, cool, refreshing and just a hair boozier than your typical Paloma.
