I love a good margarita, and fresh herbs and citrus elevate the cocktail to perfection! Plus – swapping out the orange liqueur for a squeeze of fresh orange juice adds a healthy twist and an amazing burst of flavor. It’s refreshing, light, and perfect for making in big batches. Cheers!
SERVING SIZE: 2 (feel free to multiply to make a bigger batch)
FOR CUCUMBER INFUSED TEQUILA:
1 cucumber, sliced
3-4 cup fresh strawberries
1/4 cup fresh mint
2 shots passion fruit juice
1 tsp simple syrup
1/2 shot lime juice
1/2 shot Orange Liqueur or fresh orange juice
3 shots cucumber-infused tequila, or tequila of choice
Optional: salt or Tajin to rim the glass
To infuse your tequila, slice up your cucumber and place the slices in a container with your tequila. Place your covered container in the fridge overnight for best results.
Prep your fresh ingredients by picking the mint leaves off the stem & cutting off the tops of the strawberries. Slice your straw berries to make it easier to muddle.
Muddle your strawberries in a separate small bowl or container to release all the juices and sweetness.
In a cocktail shaker, combine your muddled strawberries, mint leaves, passion fruit juice, lime juice, simple syrup, cucumber-infused tequila, ice, and & orange liqueur or orange juice.
Top with your strawberries or a lime slice as garnish & enjoy!! xx
