Jalapeño Cucumber Margaritas

August 28, 2020

I always saw this cocktail on the menu at my local Mexican restaurant but I was hesitant to try it. Mostly because traditional margaritas "on the rocks" is one of my very favorite drinks! And I wasn't sure if I would like a spicy margarita.

A few weeks ago, we were at that same restaurant with friends and she ordered a pitcher of Jalapeño Cucumber Margaritas. It was love at first sip! I can't believe that it took me this long to try it! I had to figure out how to make them at home! The spicy jalapeños and the cool cucumbers mellow together perfectly in the lime tequila! A perfect cocktail to kick off the weekend!

Jalapeño Cucumber Margaritas

(Two Servings)


4 tsp Sugar

8 Jalapeño slices, 1/8"

8 Cucumber slices, 1/8", seeds removed

3 oz. Tequila

1 oz. Orange Liqueur

Juice of 1 lime

  1. Muddle the sugar, jalapeños and cucumbers together really well, until the sugar dissolves. I like to do this in a small mason jar.

  2. Add the tequila, orange liqueur and the lime juice.

  3. Put the lid on the jar and give it a good shake.

  4. 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!! Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! Happy Friday!
