To celebrate Patrón's first ever Paloma Week this August, here's a knockout recipe for one of the world's underrated classic cocktails

Patrón's Paloma cocktail

Makes 1

The grassy sweetness of tequila, the zesty bitterness of grapefruit, the thirst-quenching fizz of soda – there's no doubting that the paloma is one of the world's best long drinks.

As something of an expert in the production of premium tequila, Patrón knows this. That's why it's enlisted some of the crème de la crème of the bartending industry to help celebrate the first ever Paloma Week. Taking place from 23-30 August, it'll see some of the best bars in London and Manchester offering one-off twists on the cocktail. In London, that includes the likes of Hacha, Café Pacifico, Homeboy, Annabel’s, Satan’s Whiskers, Maison Bab and London Cocktail Club, Bethnal Green.

We'd highly recommend getting in amongst it and visiting as many as possible, but if you can't, you can't go wrong with this classic recipe from the godfather of tequila, Patrón. Day or night, it's a refreshing and delicious drink that's so much more than the sum of its parts.
