Cyclone is a cocktail that balances and harmonizes two spirits, while paying homage to a cocktail, [Paloma] with a historically ominous beginning.
The Paloma was thought to be created sometime in the 50’s. However, some of the first sitings weren’t until the early 80’s in Guadalajara, Mexico, and went by the names, Fresca’s or Paloma’s. What we do know is, the Paloma is deliciously refreshing and consists of tequila grapefruit soda, lime and salt.
