True Grit

The True Grit

  • 2oz Chinaco Tequila Blanco
  • 3/4oz Chartreuse (Green)
  • 1/2oz Grapefruit Juice
  • Pinch each coarse salt and coarse sugar

Combine all three liquid ingredients with ice in a Boston shaker and shake vigorously. (You may note that this is the only time during this two-week cocktail party where you're asked to shake, so enjoy, get into it!) Strain into a cocktail glass into which you have previously added the salt and sugar. Don't agitate this too much--you want the crystals to remain undissolved. If the grit seems unappetizing, well, I can do nothing for you, son.
