  • Kosher salt + cayenne pepper and a lime wedge to rim the glass
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces tequila — about 3 tablespoons
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice — about 1 large or 1 1/2 small limes
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice — about 1/2 small/medium orange
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons light agave nectar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 jalapeno pepper
  • Lime wedges — additional jalapeno slices for serving


  • Rim the glass: Pour a thin layer of salt onto a small plate.
  • Rub a lime wedge around the top edge of your glass to moisten it, then dip the glass into the salt so that it sticks, tapping all the way around.
  • Fill the glass with ice and set aside.
  • Fill a small cocktail shaker with additional ice.
  • Add the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, agave, and jalapeno slices.
  • Tightly close and shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
  • Strain into the rimmed glass.
  • Enjoy immediately, garnished with lime wedges and additional jalapeno slices.
