Like so many things that come from Mexico, tequila is immensely flavorful and complex, and makes a drink that's much more than palatable than vodka when combined with these two ingredients.
Combine all ingredients in a highball glass (or copper mug, if you're fancy) over ice, stir gently.
It’s sweet, it’s salty, it’s tart, it’s everything you’ve ever wanted in a tequila cocktail -- no blender required. This sipper, a cousin to the margarita, gets its name from its salty rim (you can put a dash of salt in the drink, too) and the Mexican city/state of Chihuahua, renowned for distilling an agave spirit called sotol.
Combine tequila, triple sec, and grapefruit juice in an ice-filled shaker and, well, shake it. Add ice to a salt-rimmed glass, strain cocktail mix into it, and garnish with a grapefruit slice.
