This cucumber-jalapeno margarita recipe is an experimental summer cocktail that includes a playful mix of flavor extremes. Combining the coolness of cucumber with the spiciness of jalapeno creates a unique blend perfectly suited to summertime entertaining or simply winding down at home.

In order to create this fierce summery beverage, you will need three fresh jalapeno wheels, three fresh cucumber wheels and a lime wedge. Additionally, you'll need to grab some fresh lime juice, agave syrup, triple sex and blanco tequila. In terms of tools, this requires a muddler, shaker and strainer, as well as some ice.

The cucumber-jalapeno margarita was created by Horchata, a stylish Mexican restaurant located in Greenwich Village, New York City. This next level margarita is a great example of the expanding palate of consumers who are looking to experience something new and fresh.
