Caveman Cocktails!

I'm not sure what to call this...a Caveman Cucumber Lime Fizz??  In any case, sometimes it's nice to have a refreshing cocktail with friends (while trying to resist the corn chips next to the salsa and guac).  Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!

1 shot good tequila
2 tbs cucumber puree*
Juice from 1 lime
Ice cubes
Lime wedges and cucumber slices for garnish

Put tequila, cucumber puree, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with some ice and shake the you-know-what out of it (have you seen a shake weight commercial??).  Strain the contents into the glass with ice and top off with Perrier.  Garnish with lime wedges and cucumber slices.

*Peel and seed 1 small cucumber.  Pulse in a food processor until smooth (you can add a couple drops of water if you're having trouble getting it to the right consistency.

Sounds amazing! Everything I'm looking for in a cocktail... would it be inappropriate to bring my own batch to a margarita outing with friends ;)

When you eat this way, you find you travel with food/drinks a lot. Never inappropriate to bring your own supply, as long as you share!
