DaRecipeSimple Jalapeno and Cucumber Margarita Recipe – Being from the San Diego area we’ve been drinking these margaritas for many years, an if your ever on Shelter Island you can meet the Bartender at Miguels who has been making these for 10 plus years. The trick is to use a guava nectar not syrup an to chop up both the cucumber and Jelopeno into small pieces along with some cilantro, shaken through ice and served with or without salt rimmed glass. “Nothing tastes better than tequila and jalapeno; the cucumber adds a freshness that helps to mute the jalapeno’s bite. The longer it chills, the more jalapeno and cucumber infuses into the tequila. Serve over ice in a salt-rimmed glass, garnished with cucumber slices.”
