For the Tajín-Sugar Rim:

  • 2 Teaspoons sugar coarse, such as turbinado or demerara
  • 2 Teaspoons chile-lime seasoning such as Tajín Clásico Seasoning
  • 1 Wedge lime or lime juice

For the Chile-Mango Mexican Candy Shot:

  • 4 Ounces mango frozen chunks, about 1 cup
  • 2 Ounces orange juice mango-flavored, such as Simply Orange Juice with Mango
  • 2 Ounces tequila silver, such as Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila
  • ½- Ounce agave nectar such as Tres Agaves Organic Agave Nectar
  • 3 Tablespoons chamoy such as Tajín Chamoy Mild Sauce
  • Wedge mango Sweetened dried, for garnish, optional


For the Tajín-Sugar Rim:

  • On a shallow plate, mix together sugar and chile-lime seasoning.
  • Dip the rim of your shot glass into lime juice or swipe a lime wedge around the rim of your glass. Dip the dampened rim of the glass into the prepared Tajín-sugar, assuring the mixture covers the entire rim.

For the Chile-Mango Mexican Candy Shot:

  • To the pitcher of a blender (or the cup of a handheld immersion blender), add frozen mango, mango-flavored orange juice, tequila, and agave nectar. Blend until smooth.
  • Drizzle about 2 teaspoons of chamoy along the inside of your shot glass. Immediately fill glass with mango mixture. If you wish, run a lime wedge along the edge of a piece of sweetened, dried mango and dip it into the chile-lime seasoning. You can place it on top of the shot glass as a garnish.
