- 1/4 oz lime juice
- 1/4 oz agave syrup
- 1/2 oz coconut milk
- 1 oz mango nectar
- 1/2 oz anejo tequila
- 1 1/2 oz habanero-infused tequila**
- Tajin seasoning
- Crushed ice
**Habanero-Infused Tequila Ingredients
- 2 habanero peppers
- 1 cup blanco tequila
- I suggest tasting it after a half an hour as the level of spice really varies from pepper to pepper. When you taste it, it should take about 5 seconds for the intense spice to hit your tongue and it should dissipate pleasantly without making you immediately want to find relief from it.
- If it is too spicy, you can add some more tequila to balance it out but remember, it should have a kick as it will be mellowed out in the cocktail considerably.
