Farmers Market Margarita

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! We celebrated with a nice Mexican meal at our favorite Mexican restaurant. We have been going to this particular restaurant  for about 18 years now. We go every weekend and have not gotten tired of it yet. I change my order up each time. All the staff know us and always seem excited to see us.

This is also the Month that our local Farmers Market opened in town. SO, I put the two together and decided to make a "Farmers Market Margarita".  Most of the ingredients for this drink you can get at your local farmers market.


 I will confess, I got my stuff from the grocery store around the block. I also had to make a trip to the liquor store up the road as well. Five minutes later, I made a crisp, lite, 99 calorie Margarita.

Farmers Market Margarita (99 calories)
 
Ingredients:
1.25 oz. Silver Tequila (clear tequila)
2 sprigs of fresh cilantro
4 slices of fresh cucumber (thin with skin)
2 slices of fresh jalapeno (remove seeds)
1 oz. fresh lemon juice (1/2 lg. Lemon)
2 oz. water
2 packets of Splenda or similar


Directions: Add all the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice, shake and serve over the rocks. Garnish with a lime.
 

I do not recommend anyone drink alcoholic drinks but this was a winner. This margarita had a fresh clean taste. You could actually taste the cucumber and cilantro. As far as the Jalapeno goes, It gave it some kick! Gave it some spice! It was defiantly something different and a little hot.

Warning: (1)Women should not drink alcohol while pregnant because of the risk of birth defects.(2)Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive.(3)Drinking to much alcohol may impair your thinking and make you stupid.
