Looking for a refreshing cocktail to sip this National Tequila Day? Meet Double Dutch’s Pink Grapefruit Soda, a brand-new zesty mixer that’s helping to revolutionise tequila’s signature serve, the paloma, one tipple at a time. 

Co-founded by twin sisters Raissa and Joyce de Haas, Double Dutch is a premium mixer brand offering a range of seriously tasty award-winning tonics and mixers. This week sees the pair add a new flavour to its offering and it might just be our favourite yet…

Launching in time for National Tequila Day, the Pink Grapefruit Soda is helping to revamp tequila’s boozy night out stigma, transforming it into a classy serve to enjoy all summer long.

So what can I expect?

Double Dutch is renowned for its innovative and flavourful mixers, from its refreshing ‘Cucumber & Watermelon’ to its unique ‘Pomegranate & Basil’. This new Pink Grapefruit soda follows the brand’s distinctive style, offering a dual flavour of grapefruit and Persian lime. Super light and refreshing, its taste kicks off with a rich grapefruit flavour before sliding into the luscious tastes of Persian lime. 

Expect a beautiful blend of the sweetness and depth that’s great paired with tequila, mezcal, white spirits or sipped solo on its own.

How is it best served?

For our favourite summer serve, pair the Pink Grapefruit mixer with tequila, fresh lime, and serve in a Pink Himalayan salt rimmed highball glass for the perfect Paloma, the cocktail that’s rivalling the classic margarita this year. 

Where can I enjoy it?

To celebrate its launch, Double Dutch is popping up in Covent Garden piazza this week! From Thursday 21st to Tuesday 26th July, the party-loving brand will be pitching up in their iconic VW bar (right by Sushi Samba) to serve flavourful cocktails, including a zesty Paloma with Cazcabel Tequila.

Cool off from the heat and sample their refreshing take on the tequila Paloma – expect a flavour explosion to go off in your mouth. 

Tequila not your thing? Fear not as they’ll be serving up their other tonics and mixers, whizzing them into cocktail form. Look forward to trying their flagship mixers including the Pomegranate & Basil with the likes of Bullards Gin (who also have their very own gin shop in Covent Garden!), JPJ Lowland rum, Hattiers Rum and the local favourite, the East London Liquor Company!.
