Making a Ballpark Paloma

A few weeks ago, I was looking for a good margarita recipe to make at home. Specifically, I was looking for one that is sold at a ballpark or arena. What I found was Patron’s Ballpark Paloma. Here’s my take on the baseball inspired cocktail!


  • 1.5 oz of tequila
  • .75 oz of fresh grapefruit juice
  • .5 oz of simple syrup
  • .25 oz of lime juice
  • 1 egg white
  • Bitters
  • Salt for rim
  1. Combine the first five ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake vigorously until chilled and combined.
  3. Double strain into a coupe glass rimmed with Tajín or salt.
  4. Top with drops of bitters to resemble baseball stitching.

The recipe was extremely easy to follow. However, I needed to double everything to make enough for one drink. While their picture was near perfect, I was pretty pleased with how my re-creation turned out.

As for the taste, well…it wasn’t my best work. Or, maybe grapefruit just isn’t my flavor. Regardless, I’m marking this at bat as a hit!
