Virgin Paloma recipe

As you know, the classic Paloma is a tequila-based cocktail featuring fresh grapefruit juice, lime juice and club soda for a refreshing fizz but what do you do if you’re going zero proof? Cactus juice is the way! In addition to melding beautifully with the bitterness of the grapefruit and the bright tartness of the lime, it is an excellent substitution for tequila. Cactus juice has a full-bodied earthy flavor with fruity notes accompanied by an undeniable freshness that makes it suitable for light, bright beverages like this one. In this mocktail, all that goodness is balanced with a little superfine sugar for sweetness without the grainy texture. As for the half salted rim, it is a must. That touch of salt makes the sweet and sour flavors of this Paloma pop plus it keeps the bitter notes in check for a zero-proof cocktail you won’t soon forget.
