  • 1.5 ounce blanco tequila

  • 1 ounce of Cointreau 

  • Limes ( tons )

  • A little lemon

  • A speck of agave

  • The half rim of salt, always

How to make

Use a lime to rim the glass & then add salt to only half the rim. In a martini shaker add 3/4 fresh lime juice, one squeeze of lemon, then add Cointreau and tequila.

Add ice to rimmed glass & shake and strain your cocktail over the ice. Garnish with a grapefruit slice or lime wheel!

Robin's note

 I learned from Lauryn that when making a cocktail, start with the cheapest ingredients first & finish with the most expensive last. Add ice to shaker at the very end because you don’t want the ice to melt into your ingredients!
