Margarita salt, for rim
Lime wedge, for rim and garnish
2 ounces tequila
1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup, see Cook's Note
1/2 ounce green chile juice, see Cook's Note
To make the simple syrup, heat 1 part water and 1 part granulated sugar in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Cool before using. To prepare the green chile juice, put 1 New Mexico green chile in a blender with 1 ounce of water and blend thoroughly. Strain the puree through a fine mesh strainer and transfer to a squeeze bottle. If New Mexico green chiles are not available, serrano chiles may be substituted.
