The Spa-Garita: Cucumber Cilantro Margarita

{ TRY THIS PALEO MARGARITA RECIPE WITH CUCUMBER AND CILANTRO. IT’S REFRESHING, SWEET, AND A LITTLE SOUR. }

{ INGREDIENTS }

1/4 cup diced cucumber

2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves (tightly packed)

3 ounces 100% agave blanco tequila

1 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

3/4 ounce pure maple syrup

1 cup ice

{ METHOD }

Muddle the cucumber and cilantro in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the tequila, lime juice, and maple syrup. Shake well then pour into a rocks class filled with ice.

 

*If you don’t have a muddler, pulse the cucumber and cilantro in a food processor or blender before adding the liquid, or use a mortar and pestle.

*If you want a frozen margarita, simply place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

*Leaving the muddled cilantro and cucumber in your drink adds to the flavor, but if you prefer, the beverage can be poured through a strainer into the glass with ice.
