Sweet, tart, refreshing and delicious is what these grapefruit paloma blanca wine cocktails are! Perfect for serving on a warm summer day.

I’m giving you a to-do list for the weekend.
And I’m not even the least bit sorry about it.
(It’s for your own good.)
(1) Get yourself one grapefruit, a few limes, and a bottle of Frontera Sauvignon Blanc.
(2) Juice. Mix. Stir. Shake.
(3) Siiiippppp. And feel all your troubles melt away.
(Or maybe that’s just sweat.)
(Yup, mostly sweat.)
Preferably from a fancy straw and a Mason jar glass. Because we are so effortlessly Pinterest-cool like that.
To be honest, I don’t consider myself much of a mixologist, but when I found out that Excelsior Wines had developed an ENTIRE LINE of wine cocktails (!!!!!).
Well. GAME CHANGER.
Because while the.boy and I have an admittedly poorly stocked liquor
cabinet shelf, we always have wine.
And now we will always have Friday/Saturday/Sunday (wine) cocktail hour.
Consider me hooked.
Frontera Wines is actually the #1 Southern American Wine brand sold in the US, and no WONDER because it is sold at totally competitive prices ($10.99-$8.99 for 1.5L size, and $5.99-4.99 for 750ml), and it is tasty.
I plan on drinking these paloma blancas all summer long because they are the ultimate in sweet/tart/refreshing, but if sauvignon blanc is just not your thang, don’t even fear because they have enough Frontera Cocktail Recipes for every taste bud. And you’ll totally feel like you belong on Martha Stewart after you make them.
- 3 oz (100 mL) Frontera sauvignon blanc
- juice of ½ grapefruit
- 1 tbsp sugar
- ½ oz lime juice
- sparkling water and salt (for rimming)
- Rim the glass with salt (optional, but fabulous - I used a coarse pink Himalayan sea salt).
- In a separate glass, mix together the wine, grapefruit juice, sugar, and lime juice until the sugar has dissolved.
- Pour into serving glasses and top off with ice and sparkling water. Serve cold.
That sounds beautifully refreshing! I like a Paloma but sometimes that tequila is counterproductive to doing anything else.
I flipping love how easy this…strangely enough, I already have ALL of these ingredients! We keep lots of limes and lemons in the house for baking + boozy things. I’m all over this.
What? Why have I never had or even heard of a paloma?? So into this.
sounds interesting – never been into grapefruits but I am coming around to how refreshing they are on a hot day and this photo is enough to cool me down (not that I need it because the heater is chugging away nicely so I would probably appreciate it more in summer)
Totally refreshing and tasty!
Have a lovely weekend, Joanne.
This definitely need stop find it’s way into my weekend! Cheers!
Hi Joanne, we have a pink grapefruit tree and I know that I would love this refreshing drink. Have a great week-end!
This cocktail looks so beautiful and refreshing! Love the pretty color of it as well!
Brilliant beverage! Perfect for our steamy Florida Days. I would sip this out on the patio.
God I miss Palomas.
OMG I need this! Especially since I’M DONE WITH STEP ONE!!! This is one cocktail I would definitely make – and it’s such a gorgeous color too!!! 🙂
Sounds super refreshing. Great for the summer months. Have a great weekend.
This sounds so refreshing and delicious! I love the pretty hint of color! Perfect for the summer!
We’re experiencing a Heatwave here and this would be so perfect for it! <3 I love love Grapefruit so much!

Sounds so refreshing, Joanne! It reminds me of a wine version of a salty dog. Delish!
Looks refreshing! Haven’t had paloma in a while! Pinning 🙂
Bahaha your posts always make me laugh. This looks great! I am also a wine cocktail lover 🙂 Perfect for summer.. p.s. where did you get those super cute straws??
Yummy! These sounds so refreshing and delicious! I’ve never tried any wine cocktail other than sangria but now you made me super curious. I am definitely gonna give it a go!
You know you are talking my language!
So refreshing! I’ve got to try this…
That wine is a bargain! I do love a cocktail like this on a hot summer’s day. Shame it’s so bloody cold here at the moment! xx
Your pictures of these are gorgeous! Okay, so if I’m reading this on Sunday night then that means Monday morning I can start my to-do list instead of going to work? I wish! This is the perfect refreshing summer drink.
I love how everyone is posting drink recipes. I can feeel summer approaching. This would be the best way to kick it off!
This has me longing for summer 🙂
I am more than happy to have a todo list like this. It’s not super hot here but there’s something crazy happening, warm a day and super chill one day. We live in Cali…can you believe the weather. This drink is perfect..
Yum! I need this after my first NBME test. And after Step 1. PS I love grapefruit, and this is the first grapefruit wine cocktail I’ve seen, it was meant to be 🙂
Perfect summer drink – I will be sipping this very soon.
