Tips and Suggestions

My favourite food is no longer Space Dust currently its shabu-shabu, but this is likely to change. Stefan Gates


1. For the decoration: prepare the cocktail glass by rubbing a little lime juice all the way around the edge of the glass, then dip the moistened rim into a saucer of Space Dust to coat the edge.

2. Combine the tequila, triple sec, lime juice and caster sugar in a cocktail shaker full of ice cubes and shake well together.

3. Strain into the decorated cocktail glass.
