30mL tequila

30mL triple sec or Cointreau

30mL ruby red grapefruit juice

15mL freshly squeezed lime juice

30mL mineral water

  2. Pour in tequila and triple sec before stirring.

  3. Stir and remove.

  4. Rub piece of lime across rim of old fashioned glass and dip into salt.

  5. Remove plate and place glass down.

  6. Add ice and pour in cocktail using strainer.

  7. Garnish with lime.
