Ingredients

  • ice
  • 50ml tequila reposado
  • 25ml lime juice
  • 20ml triple sec (we used Cointreau)

For the garnish

  • salt
  • 2 lime wedges

Method

  • STEP 1

    Sprinkle a few teaspoons of salt over the surface of a small plate or saucer. Rub one wedge of lime along the rim of a tumbler and then dip it into the salt so that the entire rim is covered. 

  • STEP 2

    Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then add the tequila, lime juice and triple sec. Shake until the outside of the shaker feels cold. 

  • STEP 3

    Strain the mix into the prepared glass over fresh ice. Serve with a wedge of lime.
