Mojito Margarita

traditionally margi's and mojitos are sweet (sometimes too sweet)so for my money, if you tell your guests this is a mojito margi they may want some sweetness in the finish. If you try it as described and find it wanting try adding 3/4oz. Orgeat,Curaçao or Grand Marnier. to add a little smooth. play with it an make it your own. try dipping the glass rim in lime and dip in fine sugar.

Cucumber Margarita

good rephrasing on an old theme. To my taste really sweet. If you use agave syrup consider using 1/2 the amount 2-3oz, or 3-4oz of simple syrup instead of agave (one cup dry sugar dissolved in 1 Cp.hot H2O), or add ice and blend for 'slurpy' style margi's to temper the advanced sweetness of agave. very good base. like the jalapeno variation, try riming the glass with lime 1st then the end of 1/2 pepper then salt or sugar salt mix (think salted caramel)
