Start With Salt

 
 
Pour some salt on your hand between your thumb and index finger (I recommend the hand you aren't holding the shot with). After initiating the toast, lick the salt off of your hand.

Take the Shot

 
 
After licking the salt off your hand, take the shot. You get one attempt to take it. Don't screw it up.

Bite the Lime

 
 
Once you've taken the shot, bite a slice of fresh lime (or lemon if you prefer) to finish off the shot right.
