Cucumber Margarita

I’m finally trying to get back into the habit of regular blogging. May was a bad month for me illness-wise, so I’m hoping June will treat me better. I’m finished with hospital visits at least until July. I have so many posts I need to get to. I hope I have the energy.

Back in May, for cinco de mayo, I bought the big bottle of Patron. We had traditional margaritas and then the tequila sat around. We aren’t big tequila drinkers, mine due a college incident that involved me and half a bottle of the stuff; I’m sure you can imagine the rest.

So I began looking for interesting drinks involving tequila and came across this one. It sounded refreshing and I love cucumbers.

My goodness, was this tasty. Nice and cooling on a hot day. I could sit outside under an umbrella drinking a few of these.

What an interesting take on a margarita! I am intrigued because I love to incorporate new flavors into drinks, but I get sooo tired of just finding recipes for strawberry or mango flavored margs. I'll definitely be giving this a go, sounds so refreshing!

This is my new go to drink. Plus a little twist on things. I had one version in San Diego in may, as well, called a conquistador. It had a little jalapeno muddled and a little cilantro for garnish. You get a little heat and a lot of refreshment.
