From the Bar: Spicy Cucumber Margaritas
I have an obsession…it’s spicy drinks! Weird but so delicious. I tasted habañero kombucha some time last year and I haven’t been able to kick the habit. Last weekend, I was invited to a boozy tea party (fun, right?). It was ridiculously hot that day so I wanted to make something refreshing but sorta special, not your typical cocktail – that’s when I decided to combine cucumber juice with lime juice and spicy tequila. Best idea I’ve had in a while. Want to learn how to make this?
Spicy Cucumber Margaritas
makes 8-10 servings
- 1. Drop sliced jalapeno directly into tequila bottle. Let sit for at least 1 hour and strain (the longer the tequila sits, the spicier it will become). Note: do not leave jalapeno in longer than 24 hours. It can spoil and ruin your tequila…and that would be so sad.
- 2. Combine the juice of 3 peeled cucumbers and 2 cups fresh squeezed lime. You should have about 3.5 cups of juice mix total.
- 3. Fill glass with ice
- 4. Use a shot glass to measure one shot of tequila into the glass
- 5. Top with juice
- 6. Sweeten with agave nectar and stir. (Optional/I skip this, I prefer a tart drink)
