Salty Chihuahua


Incase you were hiding under a rock, it’s Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, loves! Mexican food is up there with our all time favorite foods, so we are ALWAYS down for a Mexican meal accompanied by a Mexican beer or cocktail of some sort. Our drink of choice this year is the Salty Chihuahua – Eating Well‘s Mexican inspired take on a Salty Dog.


And before we get to the recipe, can we talk about these glasses for a moment?? The inspiration for this post mostly came from the cactus glasses to be honest, ha! They were Christa’s parents when they lived in California and she inherited them this past year and has been waiting patiently to use them!

Orange flavored liqueur (we used Grand Marnier)
Grapefruit juice
Coarse salt

Wet the rims of your glasses and coat with coarse salt. Fill the glasses with ice. Pour 1 ounce tequila and 1/2 ounce orange liqueur into each. Top off each glass with grapefruit juice and stir. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.

And enjoy!
