Most popular drink in Mexico

Did you know the most popular cocktail in Mexico is not the margarita? Recently my friend Marybell introduced me to the Paloma. It was love at first sip. I love a good margarita, but often find I don't feel so great the next day. This is particularly true, if the margarita is made with sweet and sour. The Paloma is a refreshing answer to the downside of a margarita.

Refreshing grapefruit

The Pavlova is a tequila-based drink with a salted rim, that is made with either fresh grapefruit juice or grapefruit flavored soda (Fresca or Squirt). I skip the soda and use fresh squeezed grapefruit and a splash of mineral water and a couple drops of agave.
