Save Water, Drink Tequila

By dchulst on May 5th 2017

Drought conditions are no joke (trust us, we’re headquartered in Southern California). We’ve become experts in reducing water consumption and one of the best ways is by offsetting the difference with tequila. You don’t even have to run the tap to whip up the Cucumber Margarita: a slow sipping, cucumber breeze that elevates your senses and carries you away to warmer places and friendly faces. Just don’t forget to hydrate (with real H2O, not tequila, please).

Sweet Chili Rim Salt

1 Tbsp chili powder

1 Tbsp coarse kosher salt

1 Tbsp sugar

Swirl together on a plate until completely mixed. Easy peasy.

Cucumber Margarita

4 oz tequila

2 oz fresh lime juice

1 oz fresh orange juice

1 Tbsp agave

1 cucumber, sliced thick

1 jalapeno, thinly sliced

In a blender, add tequila, lime juice, agave, orange juice, and cucumber – pulse for 1 minute. Strain liquid into a cocktail shaker, add jalapeno slices, muddle. Shake with ice enthusiastically, then strain into serving glasses rimmed with sweet chili salt and filled with ice. Top with slices of cucumber or jalapeno to kick it up a notch. Olé!
