Spicy Cucumber Margarita!!
This is my all time favorite cocktail! I love a good spicy cucumber margarita on a hot sunny day! This drink is so delicious...you will definitely be having seconds. Happy Friday and Cheers!! xo
Prep time: 8 minutes Serves: 1
-3 oz Cucumber Jalapeño Tequila (If you only have regular tequila add a few extra jalapeños. You can also add the jalapeños to the tequila the day before if you like a lot of spice!)
-1 large seedless cucumber
-salt for your rim
-extra cucumber and jalapeño for garnish
-Using a peeler, take off a large peel of the cucumber and set aside to garnish your glass.
-Peel the rest of the cucumber and add it to your blender.
-Blend until smooth.
-Using a mesh strainer, pour the cucumber liquid into the strainer over a large bowl.
-Only use the cucumber juice that goes into the bowl and discard the remaining cucumber in the strainer.
-To a shaker, add 3 ounces of cucumber jalapeño tequila.
-Add 3 ounces of the cucumber juice.
-Add 1 1/2- 2 ounces of fresh squeezed lime juice.
-Add a slice of jalapeño.
-Add in ice.
-Shake for 1 minute.
-Salt your glass. I like to use a lime to wet the rim and then dunk my glass in the salt. I generally only salt 1/2 of the rim.
-Add a large ice cube and the large cucumber peel you set aside earlier to your glass.
-Pour the spicy cucumber margarita in your glass.
-Garnish with cucumbers and a jalapeño.
