Salty Chihuahua

Salty Chihuahua.... isn't that funny?
Do you get it?
Okay, here's some help, a Salty Dog is a vodka and grapefruit cocktail.  
Pretty basic, good enough, but basic.
A Salty Chihuahua?
Tequila and Pink Grapefruit juice... add some Triple Sec or other citrus liqueur, a little grenadine for color.
Cute, funny and delicious.
So refreshing, you might need a little sweater because you might start shivering with delight.

Serves 1

Coarse salt, (optional)

1 jigger tequila
1/2 jiggers orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
3/4 cup pink grapefruit juice
1 grapefruit slice, for garnish

Wet the rims of a glass and coat with coarse salt (if desired); fill the glass with ice. 
Pour in 1 ounce tequila and 1/2 ounce liqueur. Top with 3/4 cup grapefruit juice and stir. Add a tsp or so of grenadine. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.

Serve with some snacks, like chips, salsa and easy Cumin Roasted Artichoke Dip.
