This refreshing summertime sipper has sweet-citrus flavor and nuanced heat from jalapeño-infused tequila. In place of triple sec or Cointreau (orange-flavored liqueur), we save big on calories and added sugar by using fresh orange juice instead. In addition to being crisp and cooling, cucumbers offer up lots of vitamin C and vitamin K—important for overall heart health.

Active Time: 10 Mins
Total Time: 1 Hour 10 Mins
Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 cup)


  • 6 ounces silver tequila
  • 1 small jalapeño, halved lengthwise

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
