      1. Add quartered limes, simple syrup and jalapeños to a shaker.
      2. Gently muddle the ingredients for about 30 seconds.

      5. Fill glass with ice. Double strain into glasses; garnish as desired.
To Make the Salt: Mix the salt, sugar, and paprika on a small plate. When ready to use, rim a glass with a lime wedge and invert the glass into the salt mixture. Jalapeno Simple Syrup: Bring equal part sugar and water to a boil (1/4 c each) and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Drop 2-3 jalapeño slices in as the simple simmers. Once the sugar is dissolved, cover the pot and steep for 10 minutes. Strain and refrigerate until cool.
