This raspberry paloma is so refreshing with sweet mashed raspberries, tart grapefruit juice, tequila, and a splash of ginger beer. I’ve also included a mocktail version in the recipe notes!


Raspberry Smash Paloma (makes 1 cocktail)

  • Handful of fresh raspberries (8-10 berries)
  • 1/2 oz – 3/4 oz agave, depending on your preferred level of sweetness
  • Juice of 1/4 lime
  • 1.5 oz blanco tequila or mezcal
  • 2 oz pure 100% grapefruit juice
  • Ginger beer, to top off
  • Mint leaves, raspberries, and grapefruit slices for garnish


Raspberry Smash Paloma (makes 1 cocktail)

  1. Add the raspberries, agave, and lime juice to the bottom of a cocktail glass.
  2. Mash up to fully break down the raspberries.
  3. Add ice and pour in the tequila and grapefruit juice. Top off with a decent splash of ginger beer.
  4. Stir, garnish, and enjoy!


MOCKTAIL – For a mocktail alternative, leave the tequila out and sub in a bit more ginger beer. Or if you have a preferred zero proof tequila, that can be used instead.
