Spicy Cucumber Lime Margarita Recipe

Spice Up Your National Margarita Day With This Cucumber-Lime Version

The following post was originally featured on Birdie Shoots and written by Kelly Torrez, who is part of POPSUGAR Collective.


Back when I was living in the East Bay, there was the best little Mexican restaurant up the street. While their food wasn't anything to write home about, their cocktails were absolutely incredible! The drink menu differentiated between straight up tequila to craft cocktails, including a refreshing cucumber lime margarita with a kick. I haven't had the opportunity to go back, so I decided to mix it up at home.
