    I use 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!  -  05 May 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Being from the San Diego area we've been drinking these margaritas for many years, an if your ever on Shelter Island you can meet the Bartender at Miguels who has been making these for 10 plus years. The trick is to use a guava nectar not syrup an to chop up both the cucumber and Jelopeno into small pieces along with some cilantro, shaken through ice and served with or without salt rimmed glass. No waiting required, just enjoy....  -  30 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.)  -  14 Aug 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
