The Rooster Rojo Cucumber and Jalapeno Margarita
• 40ml Rooster Rojo Reposado
• 5ml Agave syrup
• 10ml De Kuyper Mandarine Napoleon Liqueur
• 25ml Lime juice
• 20ml Cucumber syrup*
•1 piece of Jalapeno pepper
*First prepare your cucumber syrup. Blend a whole cucumber and strain off 200ml of liquid. Combine with 150gms of caster sugar and keep covered, stirring from time to time over a 24‑hour period.
Chill and half rim your margarita glass with a mix of pink salt, black pepper, and grated lime zest. Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Double strain into the glass and decorate with olive oil leaf, edible flowers and perhaps a Jalapeno pepper.
Consider serving the cocktails with bar snacks of guacamole, made using Jalapeno peppers, making these the perfect accompaniment for
this exciting drink.
