    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.

    Wooh!! I added too much jalapeno, so I diluted with tonic water, used milk on my burning lips. Don't know how those heat seekers do it. I rubbed cucumber on the rim of the glass to wet it for salt. The cucumber and jalapeno are wonderful complements to the tequila, and I left out the simple syrup. It's so refreshing. The recipe is definitely a keeper--the excess of jalapeno being my goof!

    SO DARN YUM!! This is a completely fantastic recipe! I ade these for the Hub's birthday! He was stoked and I was too! They have a refreshing first note (if you will with the cucumber, and then the jalapeno hits you followed by the margarita. Nice balance! We made 2 batches and got about 3 or 3.25 glasses. So make lots! It's a fantastic drinks to make for a group. We let the mixture chill in the frig for maybe 3 hours and it was perfect. Def. make sure you leave the jalapeno seeds and membrane in there. Adds to the spice! Then Todd took parts of the mixture and put them into a shaker, over ice, salt rimmed, line on the side. Amazing!!!! The shaking before it goes into the glass is key! : thank you!!!!

    I just returned from Savannah, GA. Where I tasted the best jalapeño margarita so when I returned home I was determined to find a recipe for that cocktail. I must admit that this cucumber jalapeño margarita is even tastier! The freshness of the cucumber mixed with the subtle hot taste of the jalapeño took this drink over the top. Love it!

    This is SUCH a FABULOUS cocktail! Just made it this past weekend for friends while we were bbq-ing in some unseasonably warm weather. Used triple sec orange instead of Grand Marnier to cut down the price. Super easy to just combine the liquids, slice a jalapeno in half and add a few cucumber slices. Only thing is: You may need to triple, quadruple... this recipe depending on how much you drink! Takes a lot of limes to come up with the juice, too. This is now going to be one of my go-to drinks.
