Paloma Cocktail History
The Spanish word "paloma" means "dove," and it's an apt moniker for this sparkling grapefruit cocktail. There are several stories about who developed the Paloma, ranging from Don Javier Delgado Corona, owner and bartender of the La Capilla, a tavern in Tequila, Mexico, to a folk ballad from the early 1860s called "La Paloma," but no one knows for sure.
Mexico has made a significant contribution to the cocktail canon. Consider the Paloma, a cocktail that is popular over the border while being a distant second to the Margarita in the United States.
The Paloma is a light and delicious drink made with tequila, lime juice, and grapefruit soda. Its founding storey is hazy, although most accounts place it around the 1950s. The typical option is blanco tequila, although a lightly aged reposado also works well. It's essential to keep the aejo capped in this scenario, as the oaky flavor of the well-aged expression interferes with the clean, refreshing taste you desire in a Paloma.
Musk's sponsorship and a bottle that is the most ludicrous product on the market make it stand out. It's so awkward that the package comes with a set of instructions on how to open it. This tequila was created so that you could keep it in your home as a souvenir or collection object without having to consume it.
Tesla might be considered a collectable by fans of Elon Musk.
The small-batch tequila aejo is prepared with "sustainably sourced highland and lowland agaves," matured for 15 months in French oak barrels, and packaged in a hand-blown glass bottle.
"Tesla Tequila offers a dry fruit and subtle vanilla aroma with a balanced cinnamon pepper finish," the booze is "best appreciated as a sipping tequila." It's a smooth sip with no bite, much like a Tesla automobile.
Which Tequila Is Best
Tesla Tequila, which has a 40% alcohol content and a premium price tag of $250, is currently "temporarily out of stock" on the Tesla Shop. Deliveries to 31 US states and the District of Columbia are planned to commence in late 2022.

How Drink Tequila
Fresh grapefruit juice has grown increasingly popular in place of grapefruit soda as bartenders continue to embrace fresh juice in their drinks. If you wish to go that route, you may add unflavored sparkling water to the juice to get the desired sparkling effect. This mixture produces a comparable drink, so it's worth a go. When creating Palomas, though, grapefruit soda is the more typical choice.
Some individuals prefer to salt the rim of the glass, while others just put a grain of salt to the glass. This step isn't required, but it adds a savoury note that complements the earthy tequila and tangy grapefruit well. It also allows for the use of a seasoned salt, such as Tajn, for further flavour.
You don't need any bar equipment to make the Paloma because it's made directly in the glass. Simply combine your ingredients in a highball glass with ice and serve for a delicious drink. Don't wait until Cinco de Mayo, the Mexican festival celebrated just north of the border, to spoil yourself. Any day of the year, Mexico's national drink is a terrific pick.

What's Tequila Made From
Tequila was first produced in Mexico in the 1600s, but specific villages had been manufacturing it since the year 250. Tequila is a Mexican distilled beverage created from the Weber blue agave plant. Huge spikes emerge from a central core known as the pina on the blue agave plant. The pina is the portion of the plant that is used to produce tequila after the leaves have been removed. It's high in sugar, heated and mashed, and the sugars are fermented by natural yeast, resulting in alcohol. Then it's distilled, and blanco tequila, which some believe to be the best for margaritas, may be bottled right away.
