Reposado Tequila for Margaritas
A good margarita called for GREAT tequila…it’s the #1 most important ingredient. My favorite tequila for these cucumber margaritas is Exotico Reposado. Exotico has been my go-to brand for quality tequila for a few years now, and I just love their (AWARD WINNING) reposado.
Reposado is known for being extra smooth, making it just perfect for these margaritas. It has notes of vanilla, dry fruit and spices, and a finish of oak and vanilla as well as hints of caramel and cinnamon. If you see me making margaritas, you know I’m using Exotico. Click HERE for where to buy!
Here are some other favorite tequila recipes using Exotico Reposado!

- Tequila Sunrise
- Roasted Tomato Margaritas
- Pink Summer Shandy
- Sparkling Strawberry Margarita Punch

How to Make a Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita – Step by Step
To make this cucumber jalapeno margarita, you’ll make a jalapeno simple syrup, a cucumber puree, let them chill, and then combine them along with the alcohol. It’s a simple process and makes the drinks extra chilled and fresh.
How to Make Spicy Cucumber Margarita:
- Make the Simple Syrup: combine water, lime juice, sugar, cilantro, and jalapeno in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and stir to make sure the sugar dissolves. When it boils, reduce heat and let it simmer for a couple of minutes. Remove from heat, discard the jalapeno and cilantro, put it in a bowl, and let it chill in the refrigerator.
- Make Cucumber Juice: Puree the sliced cucumbers in a blender, then push the puree through a mesh strainer to get all the cucumber juice. Refrigerate it until cold.
- Make the Margaritas: Combine jalapeno simple syrup and cucumber juice in a large pitcher. Then add in the tequila and triple sec, and stir everything together.
- To Serve: Rim the glasses with cilantro salt (pulse it together in a food processor), pour the margaritas over ice, and garnish with cucumber slices.
Fresh, chilled, and absolutely delicious! If you want your cucumber jalapeno margaritas a little less spicy, be sure to remove the seeds from the jalapenos before adding them into the simple syrup.
