22 Unique and Delicious Palomas to Try, Mapped

View as Map

The margarita may be the unofficial drink of Austin, but the city boasts a number of great variations on that other citrusy tequila classic, the paloma. Typically made by mixing tequila with grapefruit soda like Jarritos or Squirt, the drink can also feature fresh grapefruit juice. Since there's a lime crisis on, why not switch over to Texas's state fruit, the grapefruit?

From a classic paloma at El Gallo to Snack Bar's Paloma Punch, there's plenty of grapefruity variation to enjoy. Hit the comments or the tipline to share your favorites.
