Jalapeno and Cucumber Margarita

Rated as 4.63 out of 5 Stars
10

"Nothing tastes better than tequila and jalapeno; the cucumber adds a freshness that helps to mute the jalapeno's bite. The longer it chills, the more jalapeno and cucumber infuses into the tequila. Serve over ice in a salt-rimmed glass, garnished with cucumber slices."

Excellent, I put mine in my Ninja blender with ice and it's a nice frosty drink and blends the flavors perfectly on a hot summer day!
