Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita

cucumber jalapeno margarita

Inspired by trying some of the best margaritas in Austin, I decided to take my own spin on a classic margarita with an added twist of cucumber and lime to make this fiery but refreshing.  I love all things spicy, so if you only like a little spice, I would just use one slice of jalapeno. In a cocktail shaker, muddle cucumber slices, jalapeno and honey simple syrup together. Add ice to the shaker and the remaining ingredients. Shake well and strain into a martini glass or on the rocks.

 

Ingredients
2 oz premium tequila (I used Herradura)cucumber and jalapeno
1 oz premium triple sec (I used Cointreau)
1 ½ oz fresh squeezed lime juice (1-2 limes)
1 tbsp honey simple syrup (see recipe)
2 slices cucumber
2 slices fresh jalapeno

Enjoy!
