Cucumber Jalapeno Cilantro Margarita

I’m on a cucumber juice in cocktails kick lately so naturally it was time to use it in a margarita with this version of a Cucumber Jalapeño Cilantro Margarita. I LOVE THIS MARGARITA!

This Cucumber Jalapeño Cilantro Margarita is my new favorite margarita. I love the freshness of the cucumber juice, the herbal notes from cilantro and the spicy kick of the jalapeño. Be careful with the jalapeño, I found one slice is plenty, you don’t want to overwhelm the entire drink. And, if you’re one of those people that hate cilantro, well, just leave it out! Although I can’t tell you what that would taste like cuz I didn’t make it that way 😉

You’ll Need:

  • 2 oz. white tequila (I used Patron)
  • 2 oz. fresh cucumber juice*
  • .5 oz. Cointreau
  • 1 oz. fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • .75 oz. agave syrup
  • 3 sprigs of cilantro
  • 1 seedless jalapeño slice


  1. Muddle cilantro and jalapeño in cocktail shaker with a little bit of crushed ice.
  2. Add tequila, cucumber juice, Cointreau, lime juice, agave syrup with ice and shake well.
  3. Strain into rocks glass with ice.
  4. Garnish with cilantro, jalapeño or cucumber slice as desired.


  • *To make cucumber juice, just peel a couple cucumbers and puree them in a blender or food processor. Then strain over wire mesh strainer and toss out the solids. Store whatever juice you don't use in the refrigerator, it will keep for several days.
