Spice up your next cocktail hour with this jalapeno-spiked marg. If you're sensitive to spicy foods, don't worry—fresh cucumber adds a brightness that dulls the pepper's heat. Don't pull this drink out of the fridge too early, as the flavors need time to meld.

Water, but make it fancy. Lemons, limes, cucumbers, and mint leaves add flavor and fun to boring ol' H20. You only need about 10 minutes of prep time, but make sure to allow about two days for the flavors to meld.
