  • sea salt , kosher salt, or margarita salt to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 ounces freshly squeezed pomelo or pink grapefruit juice (about a quarter of a pomelo or half a grapefruit), plus a pomelo or grapefruit wedge for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces soda water
  1. For a salted rim, mix 1- 2 tablespoons salt with 1/8 teaspoon chili powder, and spread out in a small, shallow dish. Rub the rim of a highball glass with reserved pomelo or grapefruit wedge. Dip one side of the rim in the salt. If not using salted rims, stir a pinch each salt and chili powder into the cocktail.
  2. Carefully fill glass with ice. Add pomelo or grapefruit juice, lime juice, and sugar. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Pour in tequila and top off with soda. Finish with a pinch of chili salt and garnish with reserved citrus wedge.
