Happy National Tequila Day! Let's celebrate with one of my favorite margaritas!
Have you ever had a Jalapeño Cucumber Margarita? I must admit that at first, I was hesitant to try it. I couldn't imagine how it would taste. But once I did, it mecame my favorite margarita flavor!
It's such a delicious spin on a traditional margarita. The spicy jalapeños and the cool cucumbers mellow together perfectly in the sweetened lime tequila!
It's a perfect cocktail for National Tequila Day! Cheers!
Jalapeño Cucumber Margaritas
(Makes 2 cocktails)
4 tsp Sugar
8 Jalapeño slices, 1/8"
8 Cucumber slices, 1/8", seeds removed
3 oz. Tequila
1oz. Orange Liqueur
Juice of 1 lime
Muddle the sugar, jalapeños and cucumbers together really well, until the sugar dissolves. I like to do this in a small mason jar.
Add the tequila, orange liqueur and the lime juice.
Put the lid on the jar and give it a good shake.
Fill up two glasses with lot and lots of ice and pour the Jalapeño Cucumber Margaritas over top.
If you prefer a spicier margarita, just let the jar chill in the refrigerator. The longer it chills, the spicier it will be.
I promise you - you will just love this margarita!! Cheers!!
