Blood Orange Paloma

Paloma and Casamigos Bottle

I have a love for Palomas. (Honestly, I love any relative of a good margarita.) This is my take on a blood orange paloma. Instead of grapefruit soda, I use fresh pink grapefruit juice. Blood oranges replace the traditional lime, which give the cocktail its vibrant color. And instead of agave I use maple syrup to sweeten. Why? Maple Syrup contains 35% fructose and agave contains 90%, which is even higher than high fructose corn syrup!

Blood Orange Paloma

Prep Time 5 mins
Servings 1


  • 1⁄4 cup Pink grapefruit juice (if bottled, look for no sugar added, like “Simply Grapefruit”)
  • 1⁄4 cup Freshly squeezed blood orange juice (or lime juice if blood oranges aren’t available)
  • 1⁄4 cup Casamigos Blanco tequila, or other premium blanco
  • 1-2 tsp. Maple syrup


  • Place the citrus juices, tequila, and a teaspoon of maple syrup in a cocktail shaker and stir to combine. Taste, adding a little more maple syrup to sweeten if desired. (The mixture will taste very strong before ice is added.) Fill the shaker 2⁄3 of the way with ice, then shake vigorously for 20 seconds, or until the outside of the container starts to accumulate some moisture.
  • Strain and serve up if you’re feeling fancy, or the childproof way--on the rocks with a straw for easy sipping!
