Cinco De Mayo Cocktail Recipe – Pepinita

cucumber chili tequila cocktail

Happy Cinco de Mayo, y’all.  Here in SoCal we have the joys of coastal Mexican inspired food and drink all year ’round.  So while I love me a good margarita, how about we flip it a bit?  The cucumber gives this cocktail a new freshness, and the chili powder brings the kick.

Make sure that if you have these tonight, that you have a sober burro to ride home.
