  • 1.5 ounces tequila, (White or gold, which ever is preferred)
  • 0.75 ounce triple sec, (Helps give a slight orange zest flavor)
  • 2 ounces sweet and sour mix, (For that refreshing lime taste)
  • ice
  • salt
  • limes

You will also need a shaker or mixing tin and strainer.

  1. Fill your shaker about half way with ice. Pour 1.5 ounces of tequila, 0.75 ounces of triple sec, and 2 ounces of sweet and sour mix on top of the ice.
  2. Shake or mix well until liquids become ice cold. Ice cold liquor goes down quicker. A good way to tell if it is cold enough is to mix it until the sides of the shaker start to frost.
  3. Take a 7-10 ounce cup or glass and wet the outside edges of the glass with a cut lime wedge (this will allow salt to stick to the rim of the glass). Pour a light layer of salt onto a flat plate and place the glass upside down onto the salt and twist slightly.
  4. Fill glass with fresh ice and pour the contents of your shaker over the ice in your glass using a strainer, leaving the shaken ice behind.
  5. Garnish with a lime wedge on the rim.

Bar Tip:

A good way to tell if it is cold enough is to mix it until the sides of the shaker start to frost.


Now, sit back and relax as you sip on your delicious creation.

To add a little extra somethin', somethin' - substitute triple sec for Cointreau or Grand Marnier.
