Strawberry Fennel Paloma

  • Cook Time: 2 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x


A sweet and savory Paloma using the farmer’s market summer bounty of snappy fennel and juicy strawberries.


  • 1 medium strawberry, sliced and muddled
  • 20g fennel, a few slices
  • 2 1/4 oz blanco tequila, I used Forteleza
  • 1 oz grapefruit
  • 1/4 oz 2:1 simple syrup
  • 3 dashes celery bitters
  • 1 oz soda water
  • garnish: grapefruit slice, fennel frond, course salt


  • Wet the rim of a Collins glass with water or grapefruit slice. Dip into course salt to coat.
  • Muddle the strawberry and fennel well in a shaker.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients except the soda water and shake with ice.
  • Double strain into a Collins glass with ice. Top with soda water.
  • Garnish with grapefruit slice and fennel frond.


  • I prefer to add simple syrup, fresh grapefruit, and soda water vs. a grapefruit soda for a juicier Paloma. But if you have grapefruit soda on hand and prefer this, you can replace these ingredients in the recipe with 3-4 oz grapefruit soda.
