Citrus & Spiced Cocktail

© 2024 Wicked Foods Inc. All rights reserved.

With tequila, chiles, and fresh grapefruit juice, this spicy drink smacks of South Texas. But ginger syrup takes it closer to Asia. For a sexy rim, mix together a 1:1 combo of fine sea salt and demerara or brown sugar on a plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of the glass, then dip the rim in the salt-sugar mix to coat.
