Cucumber Lime Margaritas {She Made/Ella Hace}

Squeee!!! I can't contain my excitment about today's post. After what seems like forever, I am back in the cocina with my foodie BFF girlichef for another installment of She Made/Ella Hace. Woo-hoo! Our theme this month is "green" in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Heather (aka girlichef) is sharing some festive Matcha Shamrock Shortbread Cookies, while I'm serving up a pitcher of Cucumber Lime Margaritas.

On St. Patrick's Day everybody (in the US) is a little bit Irish. Now I know margaritas and tequila aren't your typical Irish fare, but with it's vibrant green hue these refreshing Cucumber Lime Margaritas with a hint of spice will have everyone wanting to be Mexican Irish.

Margaritas de Pepino 
(Cucumber Margaritas)


  • 2 tablespoons powdered chile & lime seasoning salt (I use Tajin) 
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut in large chunks
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 1 cup tequila reposado (I used Don Julio)   
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur (I used  Licor 43)
  • Ice 

Moisten rims of 2 to 4 glasses with lime wedges. Dip moistened rims in the chile-lime seasoning salt. Chill glasses in freezer until ready to serve. Puree the cucumber with the lime juice and simple syrup in a blender or food processor until smooth. In a pitcher combine the cucumber puree, tequila, and orange liqueur. Stir to mix well. Serve over ice in chile powder rimmed glasses. Garnish with sliced cucumbers and/or limes. ¡Salud!
