The PalomaIt's almost the Fourth of July, and the weather has gotten hot. Very hot. So when 5:00 o'clock rolled around yesterday, we tried a new drink, The Paloma, which Michael Ruhlman wrote about in his Friday cocktail column this week. Each week he writes about a different cocktail, and this week he outdid himself. The Paloma is delicious, refreshing, and beautiful - the perfect summer cocktail.
