La Condesa's Perrito de Sal

[Photograph: Melody Fury]

Perrito means little dog in Spanish. Inspired by the Salty Dog, Nate Wales of La Condesa took the basic gin and grapefruit drink and transformed it to work even better with Mexican cuisine. The toughest part of making this drink might be sourcing the sotol. If you can't find it, feel free to substitute tequila.

Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
