The Chihuahua

Arden Ward Photography

Another new spin on a classic cocktail, this one takes the traditional Salty Dog (vodka and grapefruit with a salt rim) and kicks it up a notch with some Mexican flair by using tequila and a shake of hot sauce. Adjust the amount of hot sauce depending on how much of a "kick" you want.
