How To Shake Up Your Margarita: Cucumber Margaritas

by How To Mommy on 07.27.11

Sounds strange, right? That’s what I thought when my aunt first proposed making these cucumber concoctions.

Cucumber’s okay. I don’t mind it in a salad and I’ll eat a pickle every now and then. But a whole margarita of cucumber? I wasn’t convinced.

Then we (I…she was preoccupied playing with the girls) made the first batch and to my surprise they were delicious!

Give these a try for your next Ladies Night (along with some yummy Taco Dip) and it’s sure to be a hit!

Cucumber Margaritas

Ingredients

Per Margarita

  • 1/4 cucumber, seeded, peeled, diced
  • 2 oz Tequila{we used the cheap stuff and it was good}
  • 1 oz Sweet & Sour mix
  • 1 oz cup Simple Syrup {you could replace with agave nectar}
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • Ice
  • Salt {optional}

Preparation

  1. Make your simple syrup by boiling 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water until sugar dissolves
  2. Peel, seed, and dice your cumber
  3. Muddle your cucumber in the bottom of your shaker
  4. Measure and add the tequila, sour mix and simple syrup
  5. Squeeze in juice from 1/2 a lime
  6. Add ice and shake
  7. If you want points for presentation, rub the squeezed lime around the rim of your glass and put in salt
  8. Serve on the rocks and enjoy!

I love anything with tequila and adding a vegetable just makes it healthy right?! Sound like a perfect summer drink! Checking in from Feeding Four.
