You can now actually make the famous Mexican Cantaritos cocktail with this kit: includes 2 terracota clay cups, hand juicer, paper straws, and chili salt. The clay cantaritos cups are traditionally meant to be refilled during the night at street fairs, but are usually treated as disposable. As a twist, this kit has cups that are finished with a special glaze to reinforce them. Made with terracota clay, these cups are perfect for maintaining a cocktail’s cold temperature, and the handmade nature evoked memories of generations worth of fun. With proper care the cups could last for some time, but are easily breakable and not dishwasher-safe.
What is the Mexican Cantaritos Cocktail?Known by locals as “the best way to drink tequila,” the jarritos de barro mexicanos cups inspired the Mexican Cantaritos cocktail. The Mexican Cantaritos cocktail is made by rimming the cup with lime juice and chili salt, squeezing fresh lemon, lime, and grapefruit juice in the cup, and adding a splash of tequila and grapefruit soda.
