Cucumber, Cilantro and Jalapeño Margaritas

This is my favorite drink – it is spicy, not too sweet and refreshing, and the perfect way to unwind after a long day at work, or during the weekend after taking care of a toddler and two crying babies all. day. long.

RECIPE (serves about 3, or if you are like my husband and me, 2):

  • 4 oz white tequila
  • 4 oz fresh cucumber, cilantro and jalapeño juice *
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • 3 oz lime juice, or about 3 limes
  • 1/2 oz agave

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well.  Strain into glasses with ice and enjoy!

* To make cucumber, cilantro and jalapeño juice, peel one cucumber and add it to a blender with about 1/2 cup water, a few sprigs of cilantro and as much jalapeño as you can handle – I usually use about half of one, or a little more, as I like my drinks spicy.  Blend like crazy and strain over a wire mesh strainer or in a nut milk bag and discard the pulp.
