  • 1 lime wedge
  • kosher salt
  • 2-inch piece of cucumber, chopped
  • 2 fresh mint sprigs
  • 1 oz simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water combined, boiled to dissolve sugar, and cooled)
  • 1 ½ oz 100% blue agave blanco tequila
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 6 to 10 ice cubes


  1. Cut a small notch in the center of the lime wedge. Run the notch around the edge of the margarita glass to moisten. Fill a plate with coarse salt, turn the glass on its side, and roll in the salt to coat the outside edge. Fill with ice and set aside.
