  1. Spread kosher salt on a small plate. Moisten the rim of a pint glass with the lime wedge. Press the rim into the salt to rim the edge. Fill the glass with ice, add the lime wheel and set aside.
  2. In a mixing glass, lightly muddle cilantro leaves and 2 of the jalapeno slices. Fill 2/3 of the way with ice and add the tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, orange juice, agave nectar and lemon juice. Cap the mixing glass with the shaker tin and shake vigorously for 10 to 15 seconds.
  3. Strain the drink into the rimmed glass. Garnish with the cilantro sprig and the remaining 2 jalapeno slices and serve.
