Ingredients

  •  2 ounces tequila 
  • 1 1/2  lime, juiced

  • Tajin Seasoning
  • Ice
  • Lime wedges for garnish

  2. Rim your glass with lime juice and rub into the Tajin seasoning until the rim is completely coated.

Notes

  • Make sure to use fresh lime juice and not the juice from a bottle. 
  • You can find Tajin seasoning at most grocery stores in the spice isle.
  • The purpose of the egg white is to give the foamy top. Feel free to remove if you do not care to have that.
