Friday is here and it’s margarita time, only this weekend we are going to give everything a little extra kick with this recipe which will be sure to get your weekend off to a spicy start.



1/2 cup fresh lime juice

1/2 cup white tequila

1/4 cup orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier

1/4 cup simple syrup, or more as needed

4 thin slices cucumber

jalapeno, halved lengthwise

Ice, for serving

Salt for glass rims, optional



Thoroughly mix the lime juice, tequila, orange liqueur, simple syrup, cucumber and jalapenos in a large pitcher. Leave it all to chill for at least an hour. The longer it sits, the more all the flavours will fuse together for extra punch.


Have a great weekend everybody!
