Refreshing Cucumber Jalapeño Margarita

The perfect drink for a hot summer day.

There is nothing better than a nice, cool drink on a hot summer day. Jessie Cohn, bartender at Lago Tacos, gave us two of his favorite recipes to whip up during the warmer months.

Cucumber Jalapeño Margarita

2 oz. Milagro tequila
1 freshly squeezed lime
2 Tbsp. simple syrup
1 seedless sliced jalapeño

Muddle two slices of cucumber and three slices of jalapeño in a tall glass. Add ice and the vodka, lime juice and simple syrup. Stir. Garnish with another slice of jalapeño and cucumber.

1.5 oz. Absolut Mandarin
2 oz. orange juice
2 Tbsp. simple syrup
1 packet of creamer
