Cucumber Margaritas

These Cucumber Margaritas almost make me wish they were just called Margaritas…

They’re just so good.  And refreshing.

And good.

(Did I say they were good?)


In a blender, puree the following…

  • 2 standard cucumbers, (or 1 large English cucumber), peeled, seeded and chunked
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice (8-10 limes)
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar (+ more to taste if you desire a sweeter cocktail)
  • 1 cup tequila blanco

Once pureed smooth, chill and pour over ice (you can absolutely strain if you don’t like the slushy-like consistency, but I enjoy it… also, I’m getting some fiber so it’s basically a health drink).

OR you can add ice and make ‘er a frozen one! This will dull the flavors a bit, so feel free to adjust to your liking.

Garnish with a cucumber slice, if desired.

(The blending of the whole cucumber is my way of ‘juicing’ a cucumber… you can certainly pull out your electric juicer and get a pulp-free and thin cucumber juice for these.  And then clean that damn thing.  OR you can just do it this way.  Your call.)

Either way, this sucker is fan-freakin-tastic.

Cheers!! XOXO
