Tequila Cucumber Zen: Cucumber Lime Margarita

Tequila Cucumber Zen

Cucumber Lime Margarita



Ingredients (makes about two cucumber lime margaritas):

  • 2 cucumbers 
  • 3 ounces of tequila
  • 3 ounces of fresh lime juice 
  • Limes for garnish
  • Blender or Bullet (or anything along those lines)
  • Strainer
  • Cocktail shaker

How to make a cucumber lime margarita:

  1. Peel the cucumbers and slice them into a little chunks. Throw them in your blender and blend it like there's no tomorrow for about a minute. Basically it needs to start looking like juice.
  2. Strain cucumber mixture over a bowl or cup to get all of the ~pulpy~ grossness out so you'll just have cucumber juice.
  3. Add about 3/4 cup of the cucumber juice to a cocktail shaker with the tequila, lime juice and some ice. If you like your margaritas on the sweeter side you could add some honey or agave nectar. But I find that unnecessary.
  4. Shake it like a polaroid picture.
  5. Garnish with extra cucumber slices and/or limes wedges.
