"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."

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...

Nice tasting Margarita with the extra cucumber as others suggested, but yielded only three 1/2 c. (4 oz.) servings. Not quite sure where the four "pint" servings came from.

I used more cucumber slices and muddled them. I could taste the cucumber but didn't taste the jalapenos. Still, this gave me an idea of much spicier cocktail using jalapenos, so thank you for ...

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?
