  • 1 ounce blanco Tequila
  • ¾ ounce reposado Tequila
  • ¾ ounce triple sec, like Combier
  • ¾ ounce fresh key lime juice (if using regular limes, use 1 ounce)
  • Orange peel
  • Salt to rim glass, optional

Combine all ingredients except garnishes in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well, and double-strain into a chilled coupe glass with a salted rim. Twist orange peel over the top of the drink to express orange oils. Discard the peel.
