Padua Paloma

Josh Goldman, Bar Caló | Los Angeles

This Paloma-meets-spritz mashup introduces Italian bitter Aperol into the mix. Since Aperol adds some sweetness, Goldman lengthens the drink with sparkling water instead of citrus-flavored soda.

  • 1 1/2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 3/4 ounce Aperol        
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice 
  • 3 ounces fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1 ounce sparkling water

Garnish: dehydrated grapefruit wheel, pinch of black salt

  1. Combine first four ingredients in a Collins glass over ice.
  2. Top with sparkling water, and stir with a straw.
  3. Garnish with dehydrated grapefruit wheel and black salt.
