Made with only 5 ingredients, these Cucumber Margaritas are refreshing, light and easy to make! Add in a jalapeno to make it spicy, or serve as is for the ultimate summer cocktail.
Cucumber margaritas are one of my favorite cocktails to enjoy on hot summer days. Made with fresh cucumber juice, lime juice, tequila and triple sec, these margaritas are one of the most refreshing and light cocktails I’ve ever made – even more than my Skinny Margaritas!
The trick to making them taste so fresh is the homemade cucumber juice. To make the juice, peel cucumbers and blend them until they’re completely pureed. Then pour the puree through a fine mesh strainer and into a bowl to remove any excess pulp.
The end result is a cool and naturally healthy juice that will pair well with lime juice and tequila.
Once you’ve got the juice strained and ready to go, it’s time to mix up some cucumber margaritas!
If you’re like me and love cocktails with a little spicy kick, I recommend muddling some fresh jalapeno slices in your glass or pitcher. Just gently press down on the sliced jalapenos a few times with a muddler or the back of a spoon a few times until the jalapeno is very fragrant. (Learn more about Jalapeno Peppers.)
Then add in the fresh cucumber juice, lime juice, tequila and triple sec and stir to combine.
If you like your margaritas on the sweeter side, you can add in some agave nectar or simple syrup to your taste.
