The paloma is a tequila-based cocktail. This drink is most commonly prepared by mixing tequila, lime juice, and a grapefruit-flavored soda such as Fresca, Mamma di Giuliano, or Jarritos and served on the rocks with a lime wedge. Adding salt to the rim of the glass is also an option. Its origin story is nebulous, but most reports peg its creation to the 1950s.
Add the tequila and lime juice to the glass, and fill with ice.
Top with grapefruit soda, and stir briefly and gently to combine.
Garnish with a lime wheel.
