Recipe Book: Cucumber Lime Margaritas
TGIF Mint-Maggers! And hopefully it’s a weekend to celebrate the #YesVote being passed. So, whip up a couple of these delicious margaritas and await the good news (we’re feeling positive!)
2 cucumbers, peeled, makes roughly 1.5 cups of juice
Cucumber Lime Margarita:
1-1/2 ounces silver tequila
1-1/2 ounces fresh lime juice (usually half a lime)
3 ounces cucumber juice
lime and cucumber wedges for garnish
Cucumber juice: Juice the peeled cucumbers in your juicer or blender. If using a blender, add the cucumber and blend for about 30-45 seconds until it looks like thick juice. Separate the pulp from the juice by setting a fine mesh strainer over a bowl or large measuring cup. Gently push on the pulp using a wooden spoon or spatula.
There will be enough cucumber juice to make 4 margaritas.
Margarita: In an 8 ounce glass filled with ice, add the tequila, lime juice and cucumber juice. Stir to combine. Garnish with a wedge of cucumber and lime.
