1 1⁄2 oz Triple sec, Cointreau
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
2 oz Club soda (to top)
1 twst Grapefruit peel (as garnish)

Shake, strain, ice-filled highball glass. Top with soda and garnish.


Cointreau promotes this recipe as a riff on the Paloma (a Mexican cocktail traditionally made with Tequila, lime and grapefruit soda). This recipe seems to have been concocted by Cointreau's own mixologists and served at Cointreau's promotional parties since about 2012.

  • Interesting twist on the idea of a Paloma - I made it with less grapefruit and no soda and still very good! — ★★★★★
  • Great brunch cocktail. I like to garnish with half a spent lime shell. — ★★★★★
