1 medium cucumber, peeled and seeded
handful fresh mint leaves
Juice from 3 Meyer lemons
Top-shelf silver tequila
Throw the cucumber, mint, and juice into your blender. Add agave to taste – I used at least a couple of tablespoons, and about a cup of water. Blend until smooth. Strain through a fine-meshed strainer. Taste, and adjust agave and water. It should be strong, but not syrupy. Fill a small glass 1/3 full with crushed ice and add tequila to top of ice. Fill with cucumber mixture to almost the top of the glass and stir to chill. Garnish with mint leaves in desired.
If you’re not in the mood for booze, feel free to pour the mixture over ice and enjoy as an agua fresca!
