In keeping with the seasons produce – what can one do with all the beautiful cucumbers the garden is producing right now?

While salads with tomatoes are a favorite or cucs & onions in a vinegar or sour cream sauce are delicious it is nice to have a special treat now and then.

Cucumber Margaritas

  • 1-1/2 to 2 cucumbers
  • 1 jalapeno juiced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro

Put the above ingredients through a juicer. This should yield 2-3 cups liquid. Blend with

  • 1/2 cup simple syrup – to keep things GAPS legal I mix about 1-2 TBS honey in warm water
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 2 TBS triple sec or Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 cup lime juice – squeeze about 2 limes or add 5-7 drops Young Living Lime oil. I suggest putting the oil in the honey to help it emulsify
  • 1/2- 1 tsp ground sea salt

     

Blend all the ingredients and serve over ice and enjoy!

Anyone who knows me knows that margaritas have always been my favorite cocktail. My husband has stated that these cucumber margaritas are the best ones he has ever had.
