This really isn't a recipe, but more of a methodon how to 'properly' take a shot of tequila, or tequila cruda. Tequila connoisseurs will tell you that you should savor the taste and aroma slowly when drinking straight tequila. However, this method is a hit at parties and with tourists in Mexico, and there is an order that should be followed for it to make sense (more on that in the recipe).
Prep Time: 3 minutes

- Moisten the back of your hand below the index finger (usually by licking) and pour on the salt.

- Quickly bite the lemon or lime wedge. The sour fruit balances and enhances the flavor of the tequila.
