Ingredients

  • 3 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces simple syrup see notes below
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • 1 ounce lime juice - freshly squeezed
  • 1 ounce Cointreau
  • coarse salt - optional

Instructions

  • Slice a couple of small slices through the center of the lime before I squeeze the lime for it's juice. Then I have a pretty garnish. This is optional.
  • Pour all of the ingredients (not the salt) into a one cup measuring cup. Stir.
  • Sprinkle salt into a sauce so that it will hit the rim of your glass when you dip it down.
  • Take a bit of your leftover lime and run it around the rim of your cocktail glass.
  • Flip glass and go straight down, rim first, and dip it into the sea salt.
  • Flip it over again and fill the glass with ice so that you don't knock off any of the salt.
  • Fill up your glass and garnish with the lime.

Notes

To make a simple syrup add 1/4 cup coconut sugar and 1/4 cup water to a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil and let cool.
This will give you 4 ounces of simple syrup.
