Once you've sipped one of these gems, you'll never go back to the vodka Cosmo again.
1 1/2 limes
6 ice cubes
1 1/2 oz. tequila
1 oz. Tuaca liqueur
1 oz. cranberry juice
1. Squeeze the whole lime to get 2 tablespoons juice. Cut a slice from lime half for a garnish and set aside.
2. Run remaining piece of lime around rim of a 6-ounce cocktail glass. Dip moistened rim in a plate of salt (as you would rim a margarita glass). Chill glass until ready to use.
3. Fill cocktail shaker with ice and add tequila, Tuaca liqueur, cranberry juice, and 2 tablespoons lime juice. Shake vigorously to chill, then strain mixture into the chilled glass. Garnish with the lime slice.
