Paloma translates as "dove", and this drink soars with the same lightness and grace. Also known as the lazy man's bubbly margarita, the Paloma is a fizzy, fresh, and very pretty drink. No wonder it's the número uno cocktail in Mexico.

Moisten the rim of a Collins glass with the lime wedge. Pour a thin layer of salt into a saucer, and dip the dampened rim into the salt, coating it lightly. Place a pinch of salt in the bottom of the glass and fill with plenty of ice. Add the lime juice and tequila. Top it off with the grapefruit soda and garnish with the lime wedge. Serve the rest of the soda on the side.
