It’s Cinco de Mayo! While most Americans (of any nationality) don’t often know all of their Cinco de Mayo facts, they do understand it’s kind of like St. Patrick’s Day — a fun celebration filled with eating and drinking. So, with that in mind, we’re bringing you our favorite new recipe for a Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita.
Sure, there are plenty of traditional margarita recipes that are delicious, but this is new and slightly different. The cucumber makes it cool and crisp, while the jalapeno adds a nice little bit of heat afterward… or a lot of heat depending on how many seeds you put into the mix.
This Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita recipe comes from our new favorite YouTube series called Cooking Under Quarantine. In this series, friends show the world what they’re doing in the kitchen to get through the quarantine. None of them are chefs, but it always feels like a fun treat to hang out in their kitchens. Here’s the recipe, with ingredients below as well as more important info.
Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita Ingredients
- 1/3 jalapeño (or more if you like it spicy)
- 1/4 cucumber
- Simple syrup or Stevia packet
- 4 parts tequila
- 2 parts Cointreau or triplesec
RIM THE CLASS: Use either Tajín Clásico Seasoning for a spicy rim, or sugar for a sweet one. Just rub the rim of your glass with a lime, then roll it in a plate of Tajin or sugar so it sticks.
Honesty Time: We know the creators of this series. But this IS our new favorite margarita recipe and the video is pretty entertaining, so it’s worth checking out.
