The Paloma is the most popular tequila-based cocktail in Mexico; the first published recipe for the "Paloma" is attributed to Evan Harrison in a pamphlet entitled, "Popular Cocktails of The Rio Grande." This is a more involved and lightly spiced version of that great summer cooler classic. The St Germain and seasonal fruit add some really great freshness to the drink.
