Here’s  a spicy margarita with more than zip to it. The cucumber muddled into the mix layers in a fresh, clean taste. It’s a surprising and refreshing twist to the margarita.

Not to downplay the spice; it’s sure still there with the muddled jalapeño. It has a nice mild to medium kick that most everyone can handle, making this a terrific option as a unique party drink.
