El Pepino

Ingredients

First things first, let us identify what Pepino means, and that is Spanish for cucumber. Therefore, prepare yourself for a fantastic cucumber cocktail. Fun Fact: this drink is a fan favorite of Justin Timberlake so if you’re curious to know what it’s like to sip like a VIP, this is the cocktail for you.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 oz Tequila (preferably Milagro)
  • 3/4 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • 3 Slices Cucumber
  • 6 Cilantro Leaves
  • 3/4 oz Simple Syrup
  • 1/4 oz Egg White
  • Garnish: Cucumber Slice

PREPARATION

Using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, mash cucumber slices, cilantro, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add tequila, lime juice, triple sec, and egg white while filling the shaker to the top with ice. Shake 20-30 seconds to ensure the egg is mixed and so the drink is chilled. Pour cocktail into a tall glass and garnish with the remaining cucumber slice.
