Cucumber Jalapeno Margaritas

Happy Friday!

Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita

I am back with another margarita recipe this week!  I shared a juicy mango margarita with you Wednesday, but I have save my all-time favorite margarita for you for today – a Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita. And since it’s Friday you should definitely make yourself one three!

I cannot take the credit for this amazing concoction; it comes straight from the most amazing Mexican restaurant in Hermosa Beach – Palmilla.  It is right off the pier where you can listen to waves crashing in the distance while enjoying this refreshing, beachy drink.  You should definitely go!

Want to know why this tops all the margaritas I’ve ever had, ever?!?  It consists of fresh, muddle cucumber and jalapeno.  A little bit of heat from the jalapeno and the natural cooling effect of the cucumber create the most amazing cocktail experience.  You then add all the traditional flavors of a margarita; tart lime, a hint of sweetness and that kick of sweet, sweet tequila. Oooooohhhh baby, these are good!

I can put down quite a few of these and making them at home always beats spending a hundred bucks, which is what happens when I venture out to get them.
