Nothing tastes better than tequila and jalapeno; the cucumber adds a freshness that helps to mute the jalapeno's bite. The longer it chills, the more jalapeno and cucumber infuses into the tequila.
½ cup tequila, or more to taste
½ cup fresh lime juice
¼ cup orange liqueur
¼ cup simple syrup
1 jalapeno pepper, halved and seeded
4 thin slices cucumber, or more to taste
4 wedges lime
2 tablespoons kosher salt, or as needed
2 cups ice, as needed
4 slices cucumber
Stir tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur, and simple syrup together in a pitcher with a lid; add jalapeno pepper and thin cucumber slices. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Run a wedge of lime along the rim of each of four pint glasses. Spread kosher salt onto a flat plate; press glass rims into salt to coat. Fill glass with ice and pour margarita over the ice. Garnish with cucumber slice.
