  1. Dip the rim of each glass into the honey and then into the sugar and ground coffee mixture. Fill your two glasses with ice and pour in your shots of tequila. Add the cold coffee that you set aside.
  2. Twist the lemon peel to release the oils, drop in the cocktail glass and serve. It’s a real kick in the piñata! Enjoy!
