Get your Veggies on National Margarita Day

Today is National Margarita Day, and while I am not usually the biggest margarita fan, the cucumber margarita offers a way to get some veggies in AND celebrate.

The people at Sauza say this recipe serves 4. Maybe. I think 2 thirsty veggie lovers could polish this off at cocktail hour.

Just don't drive after.

3/4 cup Sauza Blue 100% Agave Tequila

1 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced

6 ounces fresh lime juice

2 ounces DeKuyper Triple Sec

2 ounces simple syrup

In a pint glass, muddle together sliced cucumber (reserve 8 slices) and tequila. Let sit in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Strain the cucumber tequila and combine with all ingredients in a pitcher. Stir and serve over ice. Garnish with reserved cucumber slices.
