Salud! In preparation of tomorrow’s celebration for Cinco de Mayo, we just had to share this Cucumber Margarita with you! For a recent cocktail party we planned, the hostess requested the signature drink be a Cucumber Margarita. Say what? Yes, that was my reaction- complete skepticism. And then I tried one- and wow, was it delicious!
Fresh. Crisp. Super Refreshing.
Cucumber Margarita- can you say: Yuuuummmmm!!!! So, in order to bring you one superb recipe for you to duplicate at your own fiesta, it was only natural that we create and test different recipes. (Yes, that was a fun afternoon!) So far, our favorite recipe to date is from Guy Fieri.
Yields: 1 drink, Total Time: 10 minutes
1/4 cucumber, peeled, sliced, seeded, and diced
1 lime, juiced, plus a wedge or slice, for garnish
2 ounces tequila reposado (we love Camarena Reposado– As Reposado means ‘To Rest’, their 100% Blue Agave Reposado Tequila rests in American oak barrels for 60 days before bottling.)
1-ounce simple syrup or agave nectar
1-ounce sweet and sour mix
Pinch cayenne pepper
In a cocktail shaker muddle cucumber, add ice, lime juice, tequila, simple syrup, sweet and sour mix and pepper powder. Shake and serve in a rocks glass with salted rim.
Garnish with a wedge or slice of lime and slice of cucumber. For extra effect, sprinkle cilantro on top.
We hope you enjoy this fun, festive cocktail at your Cinco de Mayo celebrations! Cheers! Salud!
