Seafood Salad with crab and lobster

If you're looking for a light dish to serve at a party, this is a good one. This would also be great at a summer garden party.

Did you know that the beloved Paloma is actually Mexico's most beloved cocktail not the Margarita? The Paloma is a tequila-based cocktail and is most commonly prepared with a grapefruit flavored soda, squirt of lime juice and tequila then served on the rocks with a lime wedge! Adding salt to the rim of the glass is an optional finishing touch. It's the perfect refreshing cocktail to relax with!

1 1/2 oz tequila
1/2 oz lime juice
1/2 cup grapefruit soda
1 lime wedge
1

In a highball glass filled with ice, combine tequila and lime juice. Top with soda. Garnish with lime.
