Mezcal Paloma

Yuzu lime soda brings citrusy sweetness and effervescence to this twist on a classic paloma. We love this robust, refreshing cocktail for warm summer evenings or lively brunches with friends.

The Key to Making a Mezcal Paloma

A symphony of distinct flavors makes up this vibrant drink. Citrusy lime juice complements the crisp, smoky taste of the Código 1530 Mezcal Artesanal, while Aperol’s subtle bitterness adds complexity. Topping the drink with yuzu lime soda — instead of the traditional paloma’s grapefruit — imbues this mezcal paloma with bright, delicate sweetness.

Subtle changes to this Mezcal Paloma can reveal new layers of flavor. To bring out the earthy notes of the Código 1530 Mezcal Artesanal, incorporate a herbaceous element. Try muddling fresh mint, basil, or even shiso in the glass for a fresh, nuanced cocktail.
