2 1/2ounceslime juice,(1/4 cup + 1 tbsp)
*optional* 1 jalapeno pepper,sliced into coins
*optional* 1-2 tablespoons agave nectarfor some sweetness
Prepare the glasses: Pour some coarse kosher salt onto a small plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of each 8-ounce glass and dip in salt.
Make the cucumber juice: Add the peeled and cut cucumbers in a large blender and puree for about 45-60 seconds, until smooth and completely blended. Pour the blended cucumber juice through a fine mesh strainer and into a bowl or measuring cup to separate the pulp from the juice. Use a spoon to stir the pulp mixture around in the strainer to make sure you get as much juice as possible.
Muddle the jalapeno (optional): Add 1 or 2 jalapeno slices into a pitcher (or glass). Using a muddler or the back of a spoon, gently press down onto the jalapeno slices a few times until very fragrant.
Mix everything together: Add the cucumber juice (1 1/4 cup for a pitcher or 1/4 cup for a single drink), tequila, triple sec and lime juice. Stir to combine and taste. If you prefer your margaritas on the sweeter side, add in some of the optional agave nectar or simple syrup to your liking. Start with a small amount and then add more as necessary.
Make it cold: Add in some ice cubes, garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy.
