1 teaspoon chipotle powder


2 ounces fresh grapefruit juice

2 ounces silver tequila

1 ounce orange liqueur

1 small pinch chipotle powder

2 grapefruit wedges


  1. For the chipotle salt: Mix together the salt and chipotle powder on a plate.
  2. For the margarita: Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the grapefruit juice, tequila, orange liqueur and chipotle powder. Cover and shake until mixed and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, the drink is ready by the time the shaker mists up.)
