Equipment

  • Ninja Foodi Cold and Hot Blender

Ingredients

Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita Basic Mix

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 limes divided in recipe
  • 1 orange
  • ½ jalapeño pepper
  • ½ cucumber

Instructions

Cucumber Jalapeño Margarita Mix

  • Add the sugar and the water to the cold & hot blender and select the manual cook function on high. Cook for 10 minutes and pulse x 2 to get the mixture well blended. If you don't have the Cold & Hot Blender, make the simple syrup on the stove in a small saucepan and then pour into your high speed blender.
  • While the sugar and water is heating, cut the limes in half and reserve 1 half for garnish. Peel the skin off of the remaining limes, make sure to get the white part (pith) because it is bitter. You should be left with the flesh of the lime only. Peel the orange the same way, you will only use the flesh of the orange. Cut the cucumber into chunks
  • Add the jalapeño, cucumber, flesh from the limes and orange to the blender. Put the lid on and select the extract function. If you don't have the C&H Blender, then use the highest speed on your blender for about 45-60 seconds.
  • Strain the liquid through a fine sieve strainer to remove the pulp (reserve the pulp for frozen margaritas) and refrigerate until ready to mix up your margaritas. You can also freeze this mix for use later.

Cucumber Jalapeño Margarita On The Rocks

  • Add ice to your glass, pour in the desired about of tequila and top with margarita mix. Stir and Enjoy!

Frozen Cucumber Jalapeño Margaritas

  • Add 2 cups of ice, ¼ cup tequila, ¼ cup of the pulp (optional) and ¾ cup of the margarita mix. Select the frozen drink button. Pour into glasses and serve. This will make about 2 frozen margaritas, depending on the size of your glass.
  • Cheers!

Notes

nutrition will vary if your margarita is frozen or on the rocks, so for this recipe, I am ONLY calculating the nutrition based on the margarita mix. The alcohol is not included. 
The whole batch makes about 48 ounces and you will use between 3-5 ounces per drink depending on the type of glass you are using and if it's frozen margarita or on the rocks. 
The nutritional values are calculated on 4 ounces of margarita mix (no alcohol) per drink.
