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.
