Tequila Shot with Salt and Lime by Baltic Maid

One of the most traditional ways to enjoy tequila is “neat” without anything added to it. This usually means the tequila is served at room temperature. It might be an acquired taste, and you’re probably better off drinking a more expensive tequila this way in order to actually enjoy it.

Another popular way, however, is to enjoy a chilled (or room temperature) tequila shot with salt and lime. The salt and lime take the edge off the tequila. They reduce the bitterness and the burn. This makes this drink very enjoyable.

Tequila Shot with Salt and Lime

You’ll need

  • shot glasses
  • tequila (chilled or room temperature)
  • salt
  • lime wedges

How to

Fill the shot glasses with tequila.

Take a lime wedge and rub it on the area on the back of your hand between your thumb and index finger. Or lick this area. Then pour salt on it. Grasp the lime wedge into the same hand as the salt.

Now, first, lick the salt off your hand. Second, drink the shot quickly. Third, bite the lime and suck out the juice.

Repeat as desired :-) Enjoy!
