Cilantro Cucumber Tequila Shandies

Cilantro Cucumber Tequila Shandies


  • 2 oz blanco tequila
  • 2 oz Cointreau
  • 1 large handful fresh cilantro
  • 1 large handful fresh mint
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped
  • hearty pinch of salt
  • 2 pale Mexican lagers (like Corona)

(1) In a blender, combine everything but the beer and blend on the highest speed for 5 seconds. 

(2) Strain through a fine mesh strainer into two chilled pint glasses (optional: salt rim -- I chop fresh cilantro into my salt just before rimming the glass).

(3) Top with beer and serve immediately with lime, cucumber, or cilantro garnish.
