May is in itself… an occasion to go out and celebrate enjoying our favorite cocktails! On May 22, however, there is only one choice: a Paloma cocktail!

It’s a Paloma story!

Made with grapefruit soda, tequila, and a little lime, a refreshing Paloma is… almost Mexico's national drink. Celebrated every year on May 22, it aims to recognize the famous Mexican drink and to celebrate the unique taste, but also the originality that it brings to the table with its impressive serving.

Paloma Day has not been established for many years, however, it is already one of our favorites! To mark the start of Paloma World Day 2019, Cenote unveiled a special portable Paloma Bar at the parade, and the following year, Jose Cuervo tequila brand made the celebration even more exciting, as it released a charity cocktail on the occasion of Paloma International Day.

From the shaker to the glass!

As an ideal cocktail for spring and summer, a Paloma cocktail will become the heart of the cocktail list of bars, gastro bars, and rooftops. Get the right professional equipment and follow the steps below to offer your customers the ultimate cool experience.


50 ml tequila
50 ml freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice
15 ml freshly squeezed lime
15 ml of agave nectar
Top with grapefruit soda

Use your jiggers for the appropriate dosages in the first 4 ingredients, pour them together in the cocktail shaker with ice, and shake. From the Horecanext collection, you can find a full range of professional equipment and tools for bars, such as shakers, measuring cups, strainers, jiggers, or mixing glasses with excellent quality construction crafted by top brands in the industry.



Then select the appropriate stem glass, fill it with large ice cubes, and on top with grapefruit soda and pour in the cocktail mix. Libbey cocktail glassware makes the difference again, with propositions such as the cocktail glass (34,3 cl) from the Levitas series, or the glass (31cl) from the Poco Grande series, being excellent suggestions for serving Paloma. Delicate, with distinctive features and solid construction, it is a must for serving cool cocktails.

Alternatively, the cocktail glass (38 cl) of the Ducale collection by Borgonovo is an excellent proposition, which is distinguished for its high quality and impeccable aesthetics.

For the final serving, garnish with a slice of grapefruit or lime.

Have fun!
