The Paloma is a classic Mexican cocktail made with lime juice, tequila and grapefruit soda. Scott Baird, the mixologist who created this drink for Comal in Berkeley, makes his version with smoky mezcal, fresh grapefruit juice and Cocchi Americano, the sweet Italian aperitif wine.

  1. 1 ounce smoky mezcal, like Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
  2. 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  3. 1 1/2 ounces Cocchi Americano (Italian aperitif wine)
  4. 1 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
  5. 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  6. Pinch of salt
  7. Ice
  8. 1 1/2 ounces seltzer
  9. 1/2 grapefruit wheel
  1. In a cocktail shaker, stir the mezcal with the honey until dissolved. Add the Cocchi Americano, grapefruit juice, lime juice and salt. Fill the shaker with ice and shake until well chilled. Fill a large glass with ice and add the seltzer and grapefruit wheel. Strain the cocktail into the glass and serve.
