2 jalapeños

1/2 C flaky, coarse sea salt (i.e. Maldón)

1 tsp smoked paprika

1/3 C cucumber, diced

1 cube brown or cane sugar

1 shot Cointreau

1 Tbsp fresh mint leaves, lightly packed

2 shots reposado or silver tequila (or mezcal if you're feeling adventurous)

1/3 C fresh lime juice


To serve: Extra lime wedges + slices of cucumber


Grill the jalapeños. Pre-heat your grill or broiler to 450 degrees F. Place jalapeños on the grate and blacken thoroughly, approx 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from the heat and let cool to touch. Roughly chop.

As the peppers char, combine the flaky, course sea salt and smoked paprika in a shallow rimmed dish. Set aside.

Prepare your serving glass: Take one of the lime wedges and run it along the lip of the glass. Dip into the prepared salt/paprika dish and twist your wrist to coat the rim. Gently shake off excess. Set aside.

Make your cocktail: Place a quarter of the blackened jalapeños, diced cucumber, sugar and Cointreau in a large mason jar or cocktail shaker. Muddle with a bit of force until the sugar breaks down.

Add the mint leaves, tequila and lime juice. Muddle lightly. You don't want to destroy the mint but rather, extract the oils.

Top with ice, cover tightly and shake until your arm hurts.

Place a small, fine mesh strainer over the prepared glass and pour the liquid through it.

Garnish with a lime wedge and slice of cucumber.
