Ingredients:
Amount Ingredient (Click ingredient for more recipes)
2 MeasuresTequila
1 MeasureCointreau
0.5 MeasureLime Juice
Liquid volume = 87.5ml*
Alcoholic units = 3*
Alcohol by volume (ABV) = 34.3%*
* Please note: Volume, units and ABV values are approximations only.
in-the-spirit classifies one shot as a measure of 2.5cl or 25ml

Method:

Prepare the cocktail glass by rubbing lime juice all the way around the edge of the glass and place on a saucer of salt to achieve the salted rim effect. Then add the Tequila, Cointreau and lime juice into a cocktail shaker full of ice and shake well together. Strain into the cocktail glass.

Additional notes:

A classic cocktail, sour yet somehow refreshing at the same time! For a combination of citrus flavours, mix half a shot each of lemon juice and lime juice (instead of just lime).

Garnish:

Traditionally served in a salt rimmed glass (see method above), you can also add a sliced wheel of fresh lime if desired.
