Items You Need

For this recipe, you will need a citrus juicer (or lemon squeeze), cocktail shaker, and jigger (or shot glass).

If their iridescent exterior doesn’t match your design style, maybe our Stainless Steel Cocktail Shaker with Rattan Sleeve will.

Ingredients and Instructions

While waiting for the grill to heat up, add the following ingredients to your shaker over cubed ice. We recommend that you start with your strongest, base ingredients. Although this recipe calls for Blanco Tequila, you are welcome to use whatever tequila you like. Next, use your jigger to add the enhancers, mixers (juicers, sweets, sours, etc.), and toppers (sodas and sparkling mixers) to your shaker, in that order. Shake your ingredients vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds. Then, salt or sugar the rim of your glass and strain your cocktail over fresh ice. Before taking a sip of your drink, garnish your glass with a lemon twist. Now sit back and enjoy your masterpiece!
