Cantaritos Cocktail Recipe

The Cantaritos is a commonly made drink made in bars and road side stalls in Jalisco, Mexico. The clay pot it is served within is often used as a disposable take away cup. It does contain three acidic/citrus ingredients so I would recommend trying it with a touch of agave for balance. Features many similarities to that of a Paloma cocktail.
