This is my wife’s favorite cocktails (also one of my favorites), we don’t have it all the time, but when we do, I need to remember the measurements every time. So why not just make my own blog, so I get everything perfect, ever time.

I will give you the standard measurements, and then the measurements that I use. You will need a cocktail shaker for this cocktail.


  • 45mL tequila
  • 25mL juice from freshly squeezed limes (or lime juice)
  • 15mL Cointreau
  • 5mL sugar syrup
  • Salt

Now, the above makes a nice standard drink, but for me I wanted more…
