12 Refreshing, Low-Cal Cocktails to Try This Summer


2. The Paloma

If you like the citrus and tequila combination in your basic margarita, you’ll love the tart refreshment of the Paloma. Simply pour a hefty shot of tequila reposado into a chilled cocktail shaker and add ½ cup fresh or bottled grapefruit juice, the juice of one small key lime, and 1 ½ teaspoons of agave nectar. Shake well and pour into a highball glass filled with ice. Top off with a ¼ cup of club soda and enjoy!

You can put a personal twist on the Paloma by replacing half of the grapefruit juice with fresh squeezed orange juice. Replace the agave nectar with a simple syrup flavored with a couple drops of orange extract and call the recipe your own.
