Las Vegas mixologist, Gaston Martinez has a fantastic idea in the El Pepino: Put a reposado tequila like Milagro into a margarita, then add cucumber, cilantro, and egg whites to bring an earthy flavor. The result is a smash hit and is following an ever-growing trend in that cucumber is making a number of appearances in cocktails. It is a great ingredient and adds a freshness that few other foods could bring.
This would make a fabulous brunch cocktail.
- Muddle the cucumber, cilantro and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker.
- Add the other ingredients and ice.
- Shake vigorously.
- Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
- Garnish with a thin cucumber slice.
