You also forgot the lime juice in your recipe... the freshly squeezed SMALL limes.
One (or two) jiggers of Tequila, one jigger of Controy (Mexican version of Cointreau and equal to Grand Marnier) plus two jiggers of fresh lime juice. Over ice cubes.
However, you can slush it in the blender and freeze it if you're so inclined.

As a native Texan I can remind you we are people who thrive in excess and extremism, like most Americans.
Everclear is like drinking jet fuel. And yes of course lime. If the bar advertises Anejo then they can charge more for the drink, but in all honesty, they probably just dump in reposado.

I can see using añejo because it does change the taste but not mixed with everclear, also contreau does not taste as rich as Grand Marnier..
If you lie Cointreau , Torres used to make an orange liquor with Valencia oranges that was delicious and cheaper than the French or the Curacao but I have never seen it in Mexico, I have seen the Torres brandy but never the orange liquor.. it is just too badl because it was perfect for Matgaritas and crepes suzette

Several states have banned Everclear. Why would anybody add that shit to a drink unless the sole purpose is to get f***ed up? Like Kiko said, jet fuel. 95% pure alcohol. Even homemade moonshine never gets that close. You might as well drink the stuff used to swab your arm before getting a needle.

Some places, typically tourist traps, buy a strong flavored tequila and the dilute it with carbon filtered cane alcohol. A neutral spirit, like everclear. Cane alcohol, unfiltered, sells here for under 60 pesos per liter, and that is the gringo price. Then they buy activated charcoal from aquarium stores or specialists such as Brewhaus.com (yes, in Texas) Specialists in hobby distillation products and high quality flavoring additives. Here, low cost, triple filtered vodkas, such as Oso Negro, can be converted into a wide variety of flavored vodka, schnapps, you name it. Just check out the reviews before you buy. I am not sure if they can be shipped here, not because they are illegal, but because they are liquids. You could build up a pretty impressive "fake" bar using this. This is why spirit manufacturers add that plastic insert, which is difficult to remove. Watch the bartender pour the ingredients, be wary of anything which goes " glug glug" rather than the plastic jiggers.

I always wondered why they used those inserts for general consumer purchasing, as opposed to bars.
