This delightfully refreshing margarita is a traditional recipe with a minty, cucumber twist! It’s not too sweet, not too sour, it has a delicately salted rim and it’s muddled to perfection. A perfect pool-party signature cocktail!
Add 2 oz. silver tequila to a shaker with mint and cucumber. Muddle. Strain tequila into a spare glass and remove the muddled cucumber and mint. Return the tequila to the shaker with ice, and add 1oz. lime juice and 1 oz. Cointreau. Shake vigorously.
Pour margarita with ice into prepared glass and serve.
If you'd like to make this cocktail sweeter: If you like a little more sweetness in your margarita, add ½ tsp. agave nectar or ½ oz. simple syrup. You can also add a tiny bit more Cointreau.
