Looking for something to drink on a sunny spring day? We got you! Laphroaig whisky with grapefruit soda over ice finished and a green chilli and fresh lime to round everything off is a real crowd pleaser. Salt on the rim of the glass is the perfect finishing touch.

How to Make a Perfectly Balanced Laphroaig Paloma

Palomas are effortless but also offer a surprisingly complex flavour profile. The simple 5-ingredient formula is refreshing and packs a kick.


  • 50ml Laphroaig 10 year old whisky
  • 100ml grapefruit soda 
  • A slice of green chilli to garnish 
  • A slice of lime to garnish 
  • Smokey salt rim 
  • Cubed ice


  • Rub rim of tumbler with lime, then rim with East Neuk x Laphroaig Peat Smoked Salt 
  • Add 50ml Laphroaig 
  • Add large cubed ice 
  • Lentgen with 100ml of grapefruit soda 
  • Stir and garnish with slice of lime and jalapeno for a touch of fire & a pop of green
