Scroll down for step by step directions
Step 1: Infuse tequila overnight (you can save whatever you don’t use so we infuse about half a bottle of Patron). Poke holes in 2-3 jalapeños with a toothpick or fork and leave in a sealed jar overnight.
Step 2: Slice 2-3 limes and squeeze fresh juice into a pitcher.
Step 3: Squeeze 2-3 fresh grapefruits into container (if you don’t like grapefruits this also works great with oranges).
Step 4: Add about 1-2 teaspoons of agave sweetener. Start with less you can always add more.
Step 5: Add a few pinches of fresh cilantro. Add to your liking, cilantro is strong so about 1-2 tablespoons should do the trick, adjust according to how many servings you’re making.
Step 6: Add infused tequila, about 1.5 shots per serving.
Step 7: Slice a lime wedge and coat rims of glasses.
Step 8: Mix coarse sea salt and chili powder and dip glasses into salt mixture to lightly coat.
Step 9: Pour over ice.
Step 10: ENJOY! Cheers.
