Trial By Fire

1 12 oz Tequila, El Tesoro Platinum
34 oz Pineapple juice
12 oz Lemon juice
12 oz Simple syrup (Mango-Habanero)
3 dr Salt Solution (10% Saline Solution)
1 ds Bitters, Bittermens Hopped Grapefruit
Shake, fine strain into a chilled coupe, garnish with manicured grapefruit swathe (no expression).
The pineapple and mango syrup provide an incredible texture with a deceptive foam on top often perceived as egg white. Also, utilizing a tohona milled tequila such as El Tesoro provides an even richer texture. It has a pleasant sweetness balanced out with acidity, the grassy notes from the agave, and a kiss of heat that remains consistent throughout rather than gradually increasing with each sip.
