Thinking of Drinking: Grand Solmar Margarita

We just got back from a wonderful filming trip in Cabo, Mexico.  During our time there, we stayed at the beautiful Grand Solmar Resort on the Cabo San Lucas side of the peninsula.  When we arrived, we were greeted by a rain storm.  Although we were a little disappointed, we sipped on a couple of these cocktails and had a blast.  I love the refreshing flavors of cucumber and mint.  Arriba, abajo, al centro, pa' dentro!

3 oz. Tequila Clase Azul Reposado, 100% agave
7 Pieces of Fresh Mint Leaves
½ Oz. of Fresh Lime Juice
120 Grams of Cucumber with Skin
½ Oz. Simple Syrup


First step: you have to add a giant martini glass with Tajin pepper on the ring, (lime, salt and pepper). Final step we add 3 oz. of our brand house tequila “Clase Azul reposado,”  and 1 oz of Cointreau (orange liquor). We add at least 12 ice cubes on a blender and we blend all this great ingredients to make one of Mexico’s, finest cucumber and mint Margarita
Special thank you for the Grand Solmar for hosting us and being a part of Capital Cooking's Cabo adventure.
