"Nothing tastes better than tequila and jalapeno; the cucumber adds a freshness that helps to mute the jalapeno's bite. The longer it chills, the more jalapeno and cucumber infuses into the tequila. Serve over ice in a salt-rimmed glass, garnished with cucumber slices."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is similar to a Food & Wine recipe I use all the time. It uses half a cucumber sliced thin, half a jalapeno seeded & sliced, 1/4 cup cilantro - muddle them with a wooden spoon in a pitcher. Add 18oz silver tequila, 8oz lime juice, 6oz agave nectar (available at Walmart or Costco), stir & chill for at least an hour. Strain into ice-filled glasses rimmed with a mixture of lime zest & kosher salt. I made some today - happy Cinco de Mayo!
OMG...I put in half a cuke, then you can taste it. This is good.
Winner of the Gold Star Award! About once a year I find a new recipe that is worthy of more than five stars. This one deserves highest honors. If this doesn’t make you feel the summertime fun, nothing will. I agree with other reviewers that you need to use at least a half a cucumber in order to taste the cucumber. The jalapeno gives it a fun little kick, but they are superb even without the jalapeno—except they go down a little too smooth and a little too fast. Thank you, daddyyumyum, for sharing your outstanding recipe! (P.S. Simple syrup is easy to make, just follow the recipe for Simple Syrup here on allrecipes.)
Love Love Love this recipe --- delicious! I eliminated the simple syrup - think it's sweet enough without. Also - had no fresh lime, so I used the bottled lemon juice. Taste almost just as good!
Have fun and Cheers!
This was good, but the cucumber/jalapeno flavor wasn't as prominent as I was hoping. Maybe a longer infusion, or maybe muddling them a little would work?
These were amazing! I quadrupled the recipe for a party and EVERYONE loved them and wanted the recipe. Some people even went as far as to say it was the best drink they have ever had. ... I didn't add the orange liquor and used a little less of the agave nectar than called for. I can't wait to make these again!
Wow! This is delicious, only substitution I made was to use light agave nectar instead of simple syrup. I let it sit for just a little over an hour and then took the jalapeño out thinking it might be way too spicy if left in any longer, also used some thick cut cucumber slices. So good, can't wait to make for company!
Oh boy! May a want to take most of the seeds out of the recipe(Jalapeños), but man is this a winner!
