Tips & Tricks

For an extra kick, consider mixing tajin with salt and using that as a garnish instead of plain salt. 

If you want to really make this pop, sneak a couple of drops of your hottest hot sauce in the shaker. Or, use some hot bring from pickled jalapenos. This could also work for a jalapeno Martini.
