Cucumber & Mint Margarita Recipe

Cucumber and Mint Margarita Recipe

I created this Cucumber and Mint Margarita recipe after my trip to Los Angels last year for Vanity Fair Social Club at the Oscars. While there we visited Kay N Dave’s Catina in Culver City. If your ever in the area stop in and have a cucumber and mint margarita along with a squash flower relleno. I also recommend the Beast and stopping back in for brunch.

Obliviously I really like Kay N Dave’s (we ate there 3 times) but I cannot afford to go to LA every I crave a good margarita. I knew that they didn’t skimp and they fresh squeezed their limes. So I went off on a margarita tasting adventure. I haven’t found anyone that serves a cucumber and mint margarita anywhere! It’s so refreshing and a perfect balance to the tartness of the lime and tang of the tequilas. The pictures below are pictures of Kay N Dave’s delicious food I ate and drank!

I then started experimenting with the cucumber and mint margaritas at home. First I had to creat the perfect margarita mix. So I did, or at least I think so! I also decided to create the recipe as a single or pitcher so you can share with friends or just come home and enjoy one after that tedious long day! To have a regular margarita just leave out the mint and cucumber. Again the directions are for a pitcher of margaritas or to make just one margarita. And below starts the pictures of my Cucumber and Mint Margaritas!
