Li hing mui or li hing powder can be found at most Asian food markets unless you happen to find yourself in Hawaii- then it can be purchased, well, just about everywhere.

I was lucky enough to be given a tub of the powder from some lovely friends during our visit, but if you don’t feel like searching for it, pay no mind, just replace the li hing powder with some sea salt. Same goes for the grapefruit soda. Can’t find any? Just replace it with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and some soda water. Cheers!
- ¼ teaspoon (or more) li hing powder
- Freshly squeezed juice from 1 lime
- 2 ounces tequila
- grapefruit soda
- Combine li hing powder, lime juice, and tequila in a glass of your choice. Fill your glass with ice then top with grapefruit soda. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.
