I'm not sure where you found this recipe, but I actually created the " Salty Chihuahua" about four years ago. I'm a mixologist and beverage consultant that creates cocktails for restaurants and bars around the country. It was a variation of a Salty Dog, but made with tequila instead of vodka and ruby red grapefruit juice. This is the actual recipe: 2oz pure agave tequila, 0.75 oz lime juice, 0.75 oz simple syrup, 2 oz ruby red grapefruit juice. Shaken and served tall in a salted rimmed glass.
