Cilantro Cucumber Tequila Shandies

2 servings

  • 2 oz blanco tequila
  • 2 oz Cointreau
  • 1 large handful fresh cilantro
  • 1 large handful fresh mint
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ cucumber, chopped
  • 1 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.
