Quench your thirst with a Paloma

Two days ago they predicted snow would fall in San Francisco. Snow did fall, but only on the highest point in SF. Today the sun is beaming into the house but deceivingly there is a layer of frost on the rooftops and ice anywhere water was once standing. I'm not going to complain, I'm just going to pretend it is warm by cranking up the heater and making a drink that is supposed to be made during hot and humid weather.

1 shot of tequila (2 oz)
1/4 shot of triple sec
1 can of Squirt
1/2 lime
rock salt
1 mason jar

Fill a shallow bowl with rock salt. Take your mason jar and run the rim under water. Dip the mason jar into the bowl so the entire rim is lined with salt.

Fill the mason jar with ice.

Pour one shot (2 oz) of tequila and one quarter of a shot of triple sec into the jar.

Fill the remainder of the jar with Squirt and squeeze half of a lime over the top of the drink. Stick a straw into that mason jar, pretend it's sunny, pretend you're on a beach somewhere with sand sticking to your legs because you are so sweaty from the heat and drink.
