Cucumber Mint Margarita

May 4, 2015

The warm weather this weekend in New York City put me in the mood for margaritas. This, combined with the 5 hours of pre-Kentucky Derby coverage, inspired me to make a mint version of a cucumber, jalapeƱo, cilantro margarita that I used to enjoy back in San Antonio. Here is the result.

In your Boston Shaker, muddle:

  • ~5 / 6 slices - Cucumber
  • ~8 - Mint leaves
  • 1.5 Tbsp - Agave Nectar (I used 2 Tbsp and it seemed a bit sweet)

Add the juice of 1 lime and 4oz tequila (white).

Shake with ice then strain into 2 glasses. Garnish with mint and cucumber.
