The "messy" dump of this cocktail lets all the yummy bits of fresh produce work their way into your drink. The flavors get more intense the longer the drink sits. And, bonus, you can eat your veggies after your done. So healthy, it's practically a salad!
Skinny Spicy 2 ounces tequila 1 ounce fresh lime juice .75 ounce agave syrup (1:1) "handful" ~quarter cup of finely chopped cucumber, green apple, red pepper 2-3 droppers Thai chili tincture
Combine all ingredients in a shaker tin with ice. Shake vigorously for a little longer than you normally would. Dump the entire contents into a chili salt rimmed glass.
To garnish, diagonally slice a cucumber and dip it in chili salt.
A cute little glass like this can be all the difference between a serious margarita and a whimsical cocktail party. Buying and selling vintage glassware is one of my favorite past-times.
