A friend of ours from Texas tried to convince us that this was the real way to make a margarita. Now that we’re older, we know he was lying, but this is still a fantastic prank to play on your friends, a great steak marinade, or possibly a great cocktail. If you are into that kind of thing.


  • Tequila
  • Tabasco sauce
  • lime
  • salt


1. Pour tequila into a shot glass. Add between 3 and 6 drops of Tabasco sauce and gently stir. Lick some salt off your hand (see Tequila Straight – above) – down the tequila and bit the lime. Now prepare to breath fire! (Not for the feint throated!).
