  • 2 ounces silver or blanco tequila
  • 8 ounces grapefuit sparkling water


  • Fill a glass with ice. Pour in the tequila.
  • Fill with sparkling grapefruit water. Garnish with a grapefruit wedge and lime slice (optional).


Skinny tip:
To reduce the calories and points reduce the tequila to 1.5 ounces. It removes around 30 calories and 2 WW SmartPoints (all plans); the cocktail will be 3 points instead of 5 points.
Optional sweetening: some agave nectar can be added for sweetening.
To salt rim a glass:
This technique can be used to create any salt or sugar rim on a glass. For this Paloma we suggest only salt rimming the glass if sweetening the cocktail.
  • Pour coarse salt (or margarita salt) onto a small shallow dish. It should be deep enough to get about ¼-inch of the rim of the glass covered.
  • Slide a lime wedge around the rim of your glass to wet it.
  • Turn the glass upside down and dip rim of glass into the salt.
  • Gently turn back and forth to coat the rim.
  • Place the glass upright and allow the salt rim to dry before pouring in the refreshing cocktail!
