Directions

Mix together the lime juice, tequila, orange liqueur, simple syrup, cucumber and jalapenos in a large pitcher. Chill for at least 1 hour (the longer the margarita sits, the more the cucumber and jalapeno flavors infuse into the drink).

Serve over ice in salt-rimmed glasses, if desired.

    Love it! I removed seeds from jalapeño to keep from being too hot.
    The pepper and the cucumber balanced very well. Will definitely make this again!

    After infusing for one hour the jalapeno was just the slightest bit warm...tingly lips, tiny heat...that was perfect as I've had this drink before when it was too hot..However, the cucumber was barely noticeable. I would suggest muddling the cucumber and infusing that for at least one hour before adding the jalapeno. It is a keeper of a recipe though. Slightly sweeter than I would prefer, but just a bit...so add more lime. The better the alcohol used...the tastier the drink...Gran Marnier over triple sec every day.
