Maybe it’s because the spice masks the alcohol taste and you are left with a refreshing cucumber drink with a hint of spice. But be warned since you can’t taste the alcohol as much, it can be sneaky. This spicy cucumber margarita recipe is one of my favorites – I even multiply it to make in batches.
Add the sugar, cucumber and Serrano pepper to a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler to press down and twist the mixture. Repeat this a few times until the cucumber releases juice and creates a syrup with the sugar.
Add the tequila, triple sec and lime juice.
Add ice to the shaker then close the top and shake vigorously.
Strain the drink into a glass filled with ice. Serve immediately.
