Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat; stir until sugar has dissolved, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a container. Place simple syrup in the freezer to quickly chill, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, peel 3 cucumbers and place into a juicer; process to yield about 2 cups juice. Run through a strainer to remove excess pulp. Combine cucumber juice, tequila, lime juice, and chilled simple syrup in a large pitcher. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

  • Slice remaining cucumber for garnish. Moisten rims of glasses using lime wedge. Pour salt into a small plate and dip each glass to coat rims. Place about 3/4 cup ice into a cocktail shaker. Stir cucumber mixture, pour some into the shaker, and shake for 10 seconds. Pour into prepared glasses. Repeat with remaining mixture. Garnish glasses with cucumber slices.

Cook's Note:

No juicer? I made this same recipe in a blender before I owned a juicer. Place 1/2 of each of the cucumbers (peeled, seeded, and cut into small chunks), tequila, lime juice, and simple syrup in a blender. Blend until smooth. Strain through a sieve into a pitcher. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
