Cucumber Margarita


My lovely wife found this refreshing cocktail I know not where. She was looking for drinks that had her favorite gin in them, Hendricks. But we were having Mexican food. This was a wonderful compromise. I used our favorite blanco tequila, Herradura Silver. This is definitely a refreshing drink to have with spicy food.

Cucumber Margarita


  • 1 1/2 oz blanco tequila
  • 1/2 oz Hendricks gin
  • 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz domaine de canton ginger liqueur
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 3 cucumber slices


  1. Add all the ingredients except one cucumber slice into a shaker.
  2. Add medium sized ice cubes.
  3. Shake it like you mean it for a full minute.
  4. Strain into your favorite margarita glass.
  5. Garnish with the remaining cucumber slice.
