This Cinco de Mayo, change the things of your usual daisy and try this fabulous Sparkling Pink Dove Cocktail recipe instead!
If you ask me, tequila is underrated in the cocktail world: this Pink Paloma cocktail recipe It is a magnificent (and delicious) example of the versatility of tequila.
La paloma is a traditional tequila cocktail, although I have slightly modified the recipe. Some recipes call for grapefruit juice or soda, but I like a mix of both. Grapefruit juice gives it a richer flavor and a pretty pink color, while citrus soda adds fizz and a hint of sweetness.
This bright pink Dove cocktail is the perfect addition to brunch, girl's night or any celebration.

P.S- One of my other favorite sparkling cocktails is Rosita Fresita Bellini (If you're a fan of champagne, you'll love this one too!)
Sparkling Pink Paloma Cocktail Recipe
- 1.5 ounces of silver tequila
- 1 ounce of grapefruit juice
- Citrus soda (Sprite, Squirt, etc.)
- Lime juice
- Salt, to decorate
Pour salt into a small plate until the surface is lightly covered. Pass a lemon wedge along the rim of a low glass, then place the glass upside down on the plate so that the rim is in the salt. Slightly rotate the glass until the edge is covered with the desired amount of salt. Fill the glass with ice.
In a shaker, combine 1.5 ounces of silver tequila, 1 ounce of grapefruit juice, and a little lime. Shake vigorously for 5-10 seconds, then strain the liquid onto ice in your rock glass.
Top with citrus soda and garnish with a lime or grapefruit slice.
