Servings 1


  • handful of sliced cucumbers
  • 1 tbsp light agave
  • 3 tbsp jalapeño tequila
  • 2 limes for juicing & zesting
  • 1/2 c sugar to rim the glass
  • 1 c ice


  1. Put a handful of sliced cucumbers in a sturdy glass and muddle them together until semi-smashed, but still desirable. 

  2. Pour the 1/2 cup of sugar in a wide enough bowl to rim your cocktail glass. Rub some lime juice around the rim of your glass and then carefully dip the glass, face down, into the sugar to coat. 

  3. Pour the muddled cucumbers into a cocktail shaker and add the agave, jalapeño tequila, juice of both limes and a pinch of sugar. Shake. 

  4. Add 3-4 fresh slices of cucumber and ice to your rimmed cocktail glass, pour in the spicy deliciousness and enjoy! 

Not only is the Mexican Hipster recipe the perfect blend of refreshing and mildly-spicy, but it’s also the perfect themed cocktail to make for St. Patrick’s Day! It may not be Irish, or beer,  but it’s undoubtedly the perfect shade of green to add to your celebrations.
