A little sugar and spice plus the salt on the rim makes these really tasty, so please enjoy responsibly! To kick up the spice even more, first blend a few slices of jalapeno with the tequila and then add in the rest of the ingredients. 

Makes 2 to 3 drinks


  • For glass rim:
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (we recommend Espelette)
  • Zest of one lime
  • Lime wedges to garnish

For drinks:

  • 4 ounces blanco tequila
  • *Or: Sub tequila for equal parts non-alcoholic tequila
  • ½ cup freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 ounces cointreau
  • *Or: Sub cointreau with 2 ounces of fresh orange juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 cups ice


  • Place drinking glasses in the freezer.
  • Mix together salt, sugar, and chili powder in a small bowl. Add in zest, using your fingers to crush the zest with the mixture. (This will release more lime flavor.) Set aside.
  • Place all drink ingredients in the 750mL vessel. Pulse the power on and off to start to break up the ice. Then blend on low till slushy. 
  • Remove glasses from the freezer. Wet the edge of the rim with a lime wedge and then dip the glass in the spiced sugar and salt mixture. 
  • Pour blended drink in glass, then garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy.
