  1. Add the lime juice, orange juice, tequila, agave, and jalapeno slices to a cocktail shaker (preferred) or glass jar. Muddle well to break up the jalapeno and release the oils of the pepper to infuse. 
  2. If you’d like a glass with salt and/or Tajin on the rim, run a lime around it and dip the glass in salt or a mixture of salt and Tajin. Fill your glass with crushed ice. 
  3. Add a few ice cubes and shake the cocktail together well. If you don’t have a shaker, stirring vigorously works, or use a jar with a lid to shake. 
  4. Strain the cocktail and pour it over the ice in the glass. 
  5. Garnish with a few more jalapeno slices and/or lime slices and CHEERS!
