Love a Margarita? Us too! And guess what? It turns out there's more than one traditional Mexican cocktail. If you've never heard of the Paloma, it's a tequila-based drink served long over ice with grapefruit juice and a hint of lime.

It's easy to make and best of all - without all that coconut cream, it's a healthier cocktail option than a Pina Colada with just 130 calories per serving.
