Happy National Margarita Day!
We don’t want to overhype it or anything but, IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER THAN A NATIONAL HOLIDAY DEVOTED TO MARGARITAS? So maybe the boozy “holiday” isn’t exactly a time-honored tradition… One could even argue it’s an industry creation, but America doesn’t seem to have a problem with it. In fact, margaritas are the most consumed cocktail in the US. Some accounts have us drinking 200,000 margaritas per hour.
So, what are YOU doing to celebrate on 2/22/2016?
In honor of our favorite holiday, we wanted to offer up a simple and easy twist on the classic margarita. This spicy fave will bite you at first, but after a few sips, you will not be able to put it down. We hope you enjoy!
Classic Jalapeño Cucumber Marg
1/4 wedge of lime
1/3 to 1/2 fresh jalapeño
6 cucumber rounds
5 oz Laughing Glass Margarita (original flavor)
In a cocktail shaker, muddle jalapeño and 5 cucumber rounds with the juice of the lime
Add the LGC margarita, shake, and strain over ice into a cocktail glass (we recommend a salted rim)
Garnish with the remaining cucumber round, and float jalapeños cut into rounds
